The Story of an Unlikely Hero: Pokemon Reborn Edition


Recommended Posts

Chapter LVII: Team Reborn, Assemble!

 

After doing a SHIT ton of sidequests, I am finally ready to get on with the story again.  I head into the Grand Hall, and walk right up to Ame.  Before I talk to her though, I talk to the people at the front desk.  They explain their future plans for the Reborn City Restoration Project by saying they've come a long way in a short period of time.  They say there is still much to do, and explain what still needs to be done.  First, they are still finishing up the repairs for the Beryl Wall.  Then they can finally reopen Grandview Station.  After that, they plan to rebuild Obsidia Slums from the ground up and make it a low-income housing district and resource center with community gardening and job-finding resources.  Second, they'll look at reinforcing underground structures and rebuilding an efficient intercity subway system.  Finally, they'll also be restarting the Reborn Pokemon Reintroduction Project with a brand new fully-furnished facility on Azurine Island.

 

 

I go and talk to Ame, who is happy to see that Julia and Florinia found me after all.  She's glad, and my timing is perfect.  She tells me to wait a second, as she wraps up something with her secretary.  She tells him to go inform Bennett that they've accepted him.  She adds that he certainly did famously in the trial battle, but something feels weird about the situation.  She's still hung up on Laura's resignation, but the letter she sent was hand-written, signed, and unquestionably hers...  She shrugs it off, and asks if he could take care of the rest.  She asks him what Bennett's types are, and the secretary says yes.  He'll register and notify Bennett of his position.  She thanks him and she turns over to me, saying she's got a couple of things to take care of, but she could use my help.  She starts to explain, but says it's best if everyone is here.  She says that Adrienn, Victoria, and DJ Arclight are taking care of various things around the city.  She's not exactly sure where they are right now, but I know them, and I have a good guess where to start.  She tells me to just tell them to come back here when I find them, she'll be waiting.

 

 

Okay, what the fuck is going on?!  I KNOW that something is going on!  I'll put my thoughts in at the end of this chapter like I usually do, but something isn't right with how Bennett was set into the Elite Four!

 

 

Knowing where to start first, I fly to the Coral Ward.  I see Adrienn giving a speech in front of xyr gym.  The people ask to document the design maintenance procedures, and draft a schedule for employees to check it.  Xe asks them if it's for public safety regulations, and tells them to get it online, print filers, and have one of the volunteers post the ordinances throughout the city.  Turns out Adrienn is a psychic, as xe can tell who each and every individual is and where they are from.  The woman xe talks to is having problems with electricity, which somebody was supposed to go by on Tuesday.  Nobody showed up, and Adrienn is understanding, knowing what it's like to deal with stuff for so long.  Xe turns to ask a volunteer if he's finished with the place on Kingsbury.  Kingsbury...  I remember those houses underwater saying Kingsbury, maybe the name was adopted into the new city?  He says that he is finished, and xe commends him, asking if he can escort her to Mr. Finesilver in the Neo-Circuit Power Plant.  Mr. Finesilver is filling in for Julia at the moment.  Xe gives xyr signature, asking if he needs something else.  He'll get it back to the office right away, and xe thanks everyone for all of their hard work, and to come to xyr if they have any problems.

 

Everyone leaves, and xe takes deep breaths.  Xe apologizes for making me wait, and hopes I've been well.  Xe understands I've been gone for a while, but this city is one xe can be proud of.  Even if it fell apart before, the pieces were always there.  It just took someone to put them back together.  Xe says that with the help of the local gym leaders, students from Apophyll and Onyx, and more volunteers than xe could have ever hoped for, xe thinks that they've really made a miracle happen here.  However, it was daunting, almost nightmarish in the beginning, but one doesn't make this all happen with announcements and inspirational speeches alone.  Xe started at one house at a time, taking a personal interest in each crack and story within its walls.  From teaching others to do the same in return, everything has erupted outwards into some kind of dream.  But we're not done yet, not even close.  I then tell xyr my reason for coming here, and that Ame is calling for her.  Xe understands, and tells me to go on ahead.  Xe has a couple more things to finish, so xe'll stay here.

 

I fly over to the Obsidia Ward, and find Arclight as the nightclub.  He greets me well, asking me how I'm doing.  He understands that I was sent by Ame to get him, and he already knows what the situation is.  He ended up getting involved in the city's business after Adrienn asked him to throw a tag out for xem on the broadcasts.  They were able to recruit a lot of volunteers that way, although some of them just wanted to meet him, which was a mess.  Wait a minute, if you're that elusive of a person to meet, if you're THAT famous, then why the hell would you just randomly be on the street for me to meet you?  I kinda expected to meet you IN the nightclub.  Whatever, you're a bro anyways.  However, he got a call-in tip from a listener about-- Team Meteor.  They're at it again, big shock.  He says he'll go on ahead, he just has to clear out the area first.  He tells me to go tell Ame he'll be waiting at the meeting place.  He leaves, and I go find Victoria.

 

I fly over to the Beryl Ward, and head to the cemetery.  I find Victoria, standing over Kiki's grave.  She is surprised to see I am really back, because she heard things were happening up in Carnelia, and she was really worried.  She's happy to see I'm doing just fine, as I always am.  She walks to Kiki's grave, and says that we always are.  She was just saying "Hello," "It's been a while," and "Did you find the peace you were looking for?"  She turns to me, thinking this city finally has found the peace it was looking for, but she wishes she could say the same.  She says that trying to take over the academy has been, well, not the shoes she's capable of filling.  She laments that it's never going to be the same without her, but then it's thanks to her sacrifice that it even still exists.  She's been thinking, how can the place continue to grow?  She realized that the answer wasn't to tear themselves away from Reborn City like they did before, but to give themselves to it.  Many of their students have been very involved in helping bring everything together here.  However, that's just the answer she found.  If Kiki was still here-- and if she were still in charge, her answer might have been different.  Victoria apologizes, and says that she's just going off about things like always.  I tell her Ame is looking for her, and wonders if she has another project for the students.  She says she'll go meet her, and thanks me for telling me.  For now, she just wants another moment here, but not before telling me silently that it's good to see me again.

 

 

I fly back to the Opal Ward and enter the Grand Hall, where I see Adrienn and Ame.  While we're waiting for the others, Adrienn asks Ame that if xe was gone for so long, why didn't she replace xyr.  Surely if the league was still going, they would need a new Fairy Leader.  Ame doesn't want to tell xyr this, but they actually did replace xyr.  Adrienn is shocked, and would love to meet the new...old leader.  However, nobody's seen or heard from him since the incident in the Jasper Ward, which means that it was very likely he didn't make it.  Then Adrienn came back when Ame was finishing arranging a replacement, which was nice timing in that regard.  Adrienn apologizes for bringing something up like that, and I go talk to Ame. 

 

I tell Ame that Arclight is meeting us there, and assuming that he takes the low way, that will be alright.  Victoria comes in, apologizing for making us wait.  I take a step back, and we all huddle up.  Ame says that Arclight's not coming here, but he already knows, so this is everyone.  Victoria asks if something is going on, and Ame gives us the situation: They received an anonymous tip that Team Meteor still has a base in the city, right under our noses.  Everyone assumes Devon, and our suspicions our confirmed.  I knew it was Devon the moment I saw that shady-ass building!  Ame asks us how we know, and from Adrienn's point of view, it is the only logical place left.  Xe's been all over the rest of the city pretty intimately, and Devon Corp. is the only place that's always restricted anyone from working around.  Victoria even notes that the storefront just looks shifty for what's supposed to be an international company.  Adrienn adds that Sweet Co. invested heavily in the restoration, and even Silph Co. was generous enough to donate funds.  The fact that Devon still refused to give funds makes us even more suspicious.  Ame reveals that it is no longer a suspicion or anonymous lead.  She took the liberty of calling Mr. Stone with a business inquiry regarding Devon's Reborn branch.

 

 

But how can there even be a branch...

 

...if it doesn't exiiiiiiiiiiiist?

 

 

Victoria says that it's settled, and we can shut it down for good.  However, Ame says that there is one more thing.  Our informant also said that the leader of Team Meteor is hidden there right now.  Victoria assumes that it is Solaris down there, and promises not to hold back.  However, Ame corrects her, saying that it is Lin.  Man, just how long has it been since you've kept track of what's going on, Victoria?  Did you just hide under a rock after the events of Pyrous Mountain?  Ame says that from what Saphira told her, we can't take any chances with Lin.  Ame needs all of us, which is why she's going too.  This is surprising, because Adrienn thought she would stay in the sidelines.  For a second, Ame turns to think how ANNA was the one who originally asked her to do that...

 

 

...Is Anna smiling down at me?  Is Shade smiling down at me too?  Is this the real life?  Is this just fantasy?  Caught in a landslide?  No escape from reality?  Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see...

 

Ame turns back to us, and says that at this point, if we can end all of this now, she'll do whatever it takes.  Besides, as the champion, she can't just sit and do nothing.

 

 

BITCH, I know you just didn't say you were CHAMPION?!  DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN, GIIIIIIIIRRRRRLLL!!!  After I whoop ass on the rest of these gym leaders, I'm coming for your ass too!

 

 

She apologizes to me, asking if I didn't know already, saying that it's not something she likes to toss around or brag about.  But she did restart this league after all, and who do I think runs the trial battles for the gym leaders?  She says that it's not important right now, and we need to focus on Devon Corp.  She's already talked over the details with Arclight, so we go over the plan.

 

 

The Plan: The main level is probably fairly secure, even if they don't want to be seen.  We're going to take a pincer movement with one group in the front, and another group approaching from the basement level connecting to the Railnet.  We'll rendevous in the middle, and tackle the upper floors together.

 

 

Ame asks if we have any questions, and Adrienn asks how the groups will be decided.  Ame says that she and xyr will take the storefront.  If they pretend to be there on city restoration business, it won't be suspicious.  Meanwhile, she says that me, Victoria, and Arclight will come up under and behind them.  Adrienn says that if we work together, they won't stand a chance.  Victoria promises that she will show Team Meteor the same mercy they showed Kiki, and Ame says we're set, and not to waste any time.  They all leave, leaving me to conclude with this chapter with some thoughts.

 

 

 

HOLY SHIT, SHIT IS GOING DOWN.  I KNOW that Elias forged Laura's resignation.  Most likely used Ditto for that!  She wouldn't just get fired like that out of the blue.  Not even Ame knew what was going on!  Laura even said herself, she was FIRED, not resigned!  I don't know what's going on, but it seems like Bennett and Elias did some shady shit to get Bennett in the Elite Four!  And I am just going to assume that Bennett is a member of Team Meteor at this point.  I mean, he is literally with someone who is in Team Meteor.  Elias probably recruited him in that, too.

 

And I have a baaaaaad feeling for what is going to go down in Devon Corp.  Gonna bring in the big guns for this one!

 

 

BUT WAIT A MINUTE!  Before I conclude this chapter with the stuff I usually do, I want to TRULY assemble the Reborn Team!  Do you really think it is just us four?  HELL no!  There's several more, all fighting to keep the peace in the Reborn region!  So from now on, I'm going to be going over each and every important character in a way that is almost similar to how I have my Pokemon Team's status.  That way, I can keep tabs on everybody, and who they are involved with.

Chapter LVIII: Team Reborn's First Move, The Devon Corp. Conspiracy!

 

I teach my Pokemon some new moves, then I head over to the Obsidia Ward, where I find Ame and Adrienn already in position.  They both tell me to meet up with Arclight and Victoria down in the Underground Railnet.  With that said, I head down there, but not before getting TM47 Low Sweep from surfing down in the Obsidia Ward.  I head down to the basement entrance of Devon Corp, and use Flash to see.  I end up finding the same Absol that was following me, and walks away through walls.  Absol must be high as fuck.  But still... If Absol is here, then something bad is going to happen here.  I can feel it.  I meet up with Victoria and Arclight, and Victoria says to talk to Arclight when I'm ready.  I go talk to him, and he sees I got the lowdown already.  Arc holds a radio comm' here, while the others have the receiving piece.  When he sends the signal, we bust in at the same time.  If the information he got was true, then we may be in for a lot of tough battles.  But if we can do this, then we can end everything right here, right now.  Once we go in, there's no turning back.  He tells me to make sure I'm absolutely ready first, and I am.  He tells me to go ahead, he'll radio the others and be right behind me.  Victoria says that she's with me, and it'll be just like old times when we were fighting together before.  Only this time, she'll make sure the scales are tipped in our favor.

 

 

Team Meteor... ends today.

 

 

I head upstairs, and I am met with three orderlies, all in which are dressed in new uniforms like what John had.  They must have all sided with Team Meteor...  They are happy someone finally shows up, and it's about time.  They corner me, and say it's a shame they have to make me leave right away.  Victoria quickly arrives, and says that there's not a Pokemon in this world strong enough to toss us aside.  Um... I can think of PLENTY that can not only toss us around, but can also KILL us.  Do you really want to choose those words?  I certainly wouldn't want to be speared into a kabob by a fucking Conkeldurr.  Arc shows up too, and says that it's time we take them off the air.  Victoria and I battle the two in front of us, while Arc goes and battles the one in front of him.  We beat them, and they back up, while Arc dismisses them, saying the conflict is over now.  Victoria sends out Incineroar, who quickly destroys the gate.  She returns it to its Pokeball, and she and Arc head upstairs.  Meanwhile, there is either a Mega Stone or a Z-Crystal in the corner, and I can't get it...  I talk to the three orderlies, who say that was actually the most fun they've had in weeks.  They ask if we couldn't have found this place sooner.  The man says he would have thought twice before taking this job if he knew he would be facing me again.  There's not much point in a battle like that, which he learned that much from the first fight he saw me in at the orphanage.  The last orderly says that just because Dr. Connal's gotten wrapped up in Team Meteor, doesn't mean they have to.  Since the orphanage has been on a temporary close, she'd be out of a job otherwise.  Then she realizes that's my fault too.

 

I head upstairs, and Arc is worried about Ame and Adrienn.  He says they should have finished dealing with the storefront by now, but they're not here.  He doesn't see them, and assumes they went on ahead.  He says he'll go on ahead just far enough to see if they are up there.  He tells me to check the storefront for him, and tells Victoria to watch our exit in case anyone comes to separate us that way.  He doesn't this, and goes on ahead.  Victoria tells him to be safe and not to go too far.  She asks me if it was really okay that we let those three downstairs go, and she was honestly expecting more of a fight.  I head to the storefront, and the whole place is ransacked apart.  I find three Meteor grunts, all unconscious.  I find a shiny object on the ground, and pick up the Radio Transceiver.  Did Ame drop this?  This can't be good...  I head up to the second floor, and I find two orderlies just savagely knocked out cold by Arc and Victoria.  DAMN, guys, what did we say about secrecy?  Victoria calls it karma, and says that they had it coming to them.  Arc thanks her for the backup, and Victoria says it was nothing.  She heard fighting from downstairs, and she wasn't about to just stand by.  Arc asks me if there's any sign of Ame or Adrienn, and I flash the Radio Transceiver.  I show it to him, and he says that this is no doubt the radio he lent Ame.  He couldn't even send a message to them.  He's shocked they actually dropped it, and Victoria wonders if they were overpowered.  Arc says that between the champion and a gym leader, that's hard to imagine, but... He shakes it off, and says that they have to be fine.  He says that we'll probably find them if we keep going, and takes a look around the room.  He thinks he gets what it is, and walks through.  He gets shocked, and Victoria asks if he's okay.  He says it's nothing, but he wouldn't recommend stepping on them though.  He walks and finds a terminal, and says that it controls the patterns on the floor.  He sees that there are three patterns, and from what he can tell here, they're on multiple floors.  The only way to steer them is right on this floor, and says that it's a mess.  He asks me if the radio still works, and says that he'll stay back here and work the terminal, while breaking the fourth wall, telling me to press the A button to use the radio and signal him whenever I want to rotate the floor's pattern.  He'll be counting on us, and Victoria steps back.  She gets the feeling this puzzle will go sour if we try and do it at the same time, so I go ahead first, and she'll trace my footsteps and timing when I'm done.

 

I make my way through easily, and head to the second floor.  Victoria follows me, and we both get stopped by two more Meteor orderlies.  They say it would be a shame if all of this persistence went to waste now, and Victoria says that the only thing that will be wasted is Team Meteor.  The other orderly asks if that attitude is what she teaches down at that "tawdry school", and she'll be happy to give them a lesson right now.  We teach them a lesson of whoopass, and Arc contacts us.  He asks us if we can hear him, and he asks us if we are alright because he heard fighting.  Victoria says that we're fine, and says that there's no way she'll lose to Team Meteor ever again.  Arc says that's music to his ears, and Victoria says there's another one of those floors up here, and asks if he can handle it.  Arc says it's not even a factor, telling me I know what to do.  Both of the orderlies are salty they lost, and say whether it's spirit or psyche, both break away in time.  Victoria questions why these floors were installed, and can't imagine they were just made to slow us down.  I follow the path again, and Victoria mysteriously follows my trail somehow, and the two orderlies ask how much longer do we intend to flounder in affairs well beyond our ability, and Victoria asks if they want to see just how far this ability goes.  The orderly facing her sees her getting riled up, and asks what would Kiki think.  Victoria tells him not to dare act like he knows her, and as long as he sides with Team Meteor, he is not even fit to speak her name.  We fight them, and they taunt us after we beat them.  Victoria tells the orderly to say Kiki's name one more time and see what happens.  He thinks for a moment, and asks if that's what Kiki wants.  Victoria then straight up knocks him out cold.  The other one says that even she can't say he didn't deserve that.  Victoria heads onward, while the orderly says that one of the superiors gave them a little bit of info on Victoria.  Well, all of us.  She guesses that some of them decided to put it to use. 

 

 

I head upstairs into a small corridor where I find Victoria.  She knows that she's disappointing Kiki right now because this isn't how she taught her.  But at the same time, she can't let these people get away for what they did.  She vows she will never, ever forgive them.  She continues talking as she steps forward, but then it turns out to be a trap.  The door behind us shuts, and Victoria quickly goes to the exit, seeing that it's completely sealed.  The walls start closing in.  She tells me to move, and we both start moving.  She sends out Incineroar, who holds the walls together, just giving us enough room to squeeze through.  However, she tells me to go on without her.  She says they'll be fine, and to hurry.  I make my way through, leaving her and Incineroar behind.

 

 

I'll come back for you, Victoria!

 

 

I head upstairs, and Arc contacts me.  He asks if everything is okay, as things were pretty loud up here just now.  I tell him Victoria stayed behind, and he says as long as she's with her Pokemon, he thinks she'll be fine.  I tell him there's still no sign of Ame and Adrienn, and he says this hasn't gone as planned at all.  He says I'm close to the top now, there might be something up there.  He says we should get through this and save everyone.  I try and go back, but the passage is completely sealed.  I make my way through, and one of the orderlies spots me.  He asks if I thought coming here would find something helpful.  I beat him, and he says that they already relocated everything they need, and that both projects are safe and sound, with nothing we can do about that.  I make my way through the floor, and find another orderly, who says I really should have known better than to trust an anonymous tip.  I beat him, and he says that it's too late, we're already trapped.  He further states that every step, no, every breath we've taken has been scripted.  With all of the orderlies defeated, I make my way to the top floor.

 

 

I will keep going.  Trap or not, I must save the others!

 

 

I head to the top floor, and Arc contacts me in a hurry.  He says that she found him, he means Lin, the leader of Team Meteor did.  The radio breaks up, but I hear the word help.  Looks like it was a trap after all...  I walk through, finding three items I can grab.  There's no PULSE, no Meteors in sight, just three items, one including a TM.  However, before I make my way to claim my rewards, the tile on the floor turns yellow, and I get zapped into unconsciousness...

 

 

 

I should have known it was a trap.  The anonymous tip, the orderlies, everything...  Will we ever make it out alive?  Will we stop Team Meteor once and for all?  Stay tuned!

The team leveled up quite a bit, some learning new moves.  And yes, you might be wondering why there is a cliffhanger, and why I didn't just do the second half of Devon Corp. in this chapter.  For suspense, of course!  And so I can have the gym battle make Chapter 60.  Makes it more fitting that way.

Chapter LIX: Further Down The Rabbit Hole, The Devon Corp. Conspiracy Thickens!

 

 

After I'm zapped unconscious, I eventually wake up to find myself in a prison cell.  However, Team Meteor was kind enough to give me my own PC and healing machine.  Is there a Nurse Joy in Team Meteor?  Because I'm really thankful for that.  I heal my Pokemon, and give Goddard the Fairy Memory.  I enter the other room, which is large, and has a big Meteor M on the floor.  Yup...  We're captured by Team Meteor.  I head to the bars on the cage, but the door is locked behind me.  Victoria comes in the room from the other cell, and she is surprised to see me.  She walks up to the bars, and the door locks behind her too, as she can't get out.  She asks me what's going on, and just then, the screen turns on, revealing Lin.  She welcomes us, and Victoria asks if that is Lin.  Lin understands that me and my petty shambles of acquaintances have come here to stop her.  She laughs, and says that we thought we were strong together, and here we are now.

 

 

"Let this be a lesson.  Numbers do not help.  Friends do not help.  Spirit does not help.  In the end, you are still powerless.  You are still a victim.  You always will be, won't you?"

 

 

Victoria asks her what she knows about spirit during this speech, and Lin just ignores her.  She then says that we will now play a game.  She directly tells me personally that in order to reunite with my so-called friends, I must fight them.  The winner may proceed, the loser will suffer a penalty.  There are no rules, and she tells us to begin.  The screen turns off, and Victoria is surprised we have to fight each other to get out of here.  She silently thinks it over, then agrees to the terms.  She promises she's not backing down, and she promised Kiki she would finish the job.  She tells me to give her everything I've got, and we'll find out which of us is better-suited to finish off Team Meteor.

 

 

Well, since I'm forced to fight, fuck it.  Sorry, Victoria, but if I want to stop Team Meteor, you're going to have to sit this one out.  Punishment or not, it's for your own good!

 

vsTrainer0.png.546f20b9067b47977bbb7e4b6148b068.pngvs.png.fa779e7deea06f1a0131c54153205bd4.pngvsTrainer84.png.54488f49765127cd55376a57db585796.png

 

Victoria sends out Mienshao, while I send out Charles.  Charles takes a Fake Out and a Knock Off, then burns Mienshao down with Heat Wave.  She sends out her Alolan Raichu, whose special attack sharply rises with its Synthetic Seed, but I easily send out Falcone and knock it out with Sucker Punch.  She sends out her Gallade, one of her aces, and Falcone knocks him out with a boosted Sucker Punch.  As Falcone's blood count begins to rise, so does his strength.  Victoria sends out Lucario, and it strikes Falcone down with Aura Sphere, but he BARELY survives as he takes down Lucario with him with Brave Bird.  She sends out Togekiss, while I send out Auriol.  Unfortunately, he gets knocked out in one hit with a critical hit Aura Sphere, so I send out Goddard with that Fairy Memory and have him use Iron Head while Togekiss uses Dazzling Gleam.  Then Togekiss thinks up a Nasty Plot, but misses the Air Slash as Goddard knocks it out with two more Iron Heads.  She sends out Incineroar while I send out Hydra.  Victoria tells herself to minimize the chaos within, and she apologizes to her Sensei once more.  After Incineroar intimidates Hydra, Hydra Dragon Dances around, getting his attack stat back, while being even faster.  He then strikes Incineroar down with two Waterfalls as she tries knocking him out with Darkest Lariat.  With Victoria's new and improved team defeated, I win the battle!

 

 

Victoria apologizes to her Sensei again, and is shocked to see me win once more.  She is surprised that after all of her hard work, training to be able to defeat them, she promised she'd never lose to Team Meteor again, but I still win.  The door opens, her tiles change to yellow, and she gets shocked repeatedly on end, whereas I get to continue onward.  I go to her, and she asks me what I am waiting for.  She tells me to get going already, and she'll be fine.  She says she'll prove as Kiki's successor that it's going to take a lot more than this to break her spirit.  She tells me to go already, the others are...  She tries to speak words, but she loses her will to speak.

 

 

"Loss of speech is not among the effects of electroconvulsive therapy.  She hasn't lost the ability to speak.  Only her will."

 

 

I hear those words replay from the Doctor as I witness the torture happening to Victoria, and can only wonder if the Doctor himself was the one who built the floor plan for Devon Corp.  As well as this punishment right here.  I then move on to the next room ahead.

 

 

Don't worry Victoria!  I promise I'll save you and the others.  I have to!  I'll put an end to their plans here once and for all!

 

 

I head into the next room, and I see conveyor belts.  Just then, the radio goes off, and the panels switch, which seems like the floor panels are still connected to the Radio Transceiver.  If Arc is kidnapped, then who is controlling the floor panels?  Also, sometimes when I walk, I end up floating, no animation at all.  But when I step on the shock tiles and get shocked, I walk again.  Dr. Sigmund, is this what you use to cure people who suffer from catatonia?  Seriously, I'm thinking YOU designed these mad puzzles of Devon Corp.

 

 

1918208874_CatatoniaFacts.jpg.605fc188e9b85a8f1bd3fff2a142a45d.jpg

 

I am not sorry for psychological education.

 

 

It takes a while, because I have to flip switches, while timing when I land on the tiles that don't shock me.  I find a light shard and heal my Pokemon, even though I can easily go back to my cell and heal from the machine.  However, I do make it across the room eventually unscathed.

 

 

I head upstairs into the corridor, save my progress, and enter the next room.  I head to the bars, and the door shuts behind me again.  This time, Arc is locked in the other cell.  He realizes that it's the same thing over again, and he tells me he found Adrienn.  Xe's on the level below, and it was set up like this one.  He asks if I've seen it, or the others, and he asks if the bitch was Lin.  I confirm it was, and he tells me that she said we had to fight each other to get out.  He says that Adrienn-- xe refused.  He curses to himself, and says that xe said xe wouldn't fight, and that he should just go on.  And the penalty...  The floor was searing, and it wasn't pretty.  This bitch is cooking satay out here!  Just then, the screen turns on, and Lin asks if we understand yet.  Arc already knows the drill.

 

 

"You have no control.  You never did.  Even if your glass-spun egos depend on convincing yourselves otherwise.  You are pigs to be herded.  You are pigs to be hurt.  Sputter, shiver and squeal.  It changes nothing.  You know what to do."

 

 

The screen turns off, and Arc says that she's going to eat those words when one of us "little piggies" catches up to her.  But right now...  He found out the hard way before that even these bars are electrified.  Plus the floor panels, which... If he's not at the control panel to switch them for me, then who is?  That's what I've been wondering, Arc!  Regardless for all of his tough talk, he doesn't have a way out of this.  It pisses him off, but she's right.  We got cocky, and now we're trapped.  He asks me what I'm going to do, if I'm going to fight, or refuse like Adrienn.

 

 

Shit, if we have to fight, I have no problems with that.  If I gotta fight you guys to save you, I'm gonna.  Fuck the penalties, I'm taking that bitch out myself!

 

 

He's glad I'm making the choice to fight, and he's fighting for Adrienn's sake now too.  He asks if I get that, and I do.  The battle begins after a good talk.

 

 

Let's do this, Arc!  You and me!  Let's dance!

 

vsTrainer0.png.546f20b9067b47977bbb7e4b6148b068.pngvs.png.fa779e7deea06f1a0131c54153205bd4.pngvsTrainer110.png.6d40a9aa00c710187027be05f4d68bcd.png

 

DJ Arclight sends out Luxray while I send out Falcone.  I switch to Dragon-Goddard after Luxray intimidates Falcone, and Goddard Multi-Attacks Luxray.  Eventually, he uses a Hyper Potion to heal it, but I keep going anyways.  Luxray goes down, then Arc sends out Raichu, who uses Nasty Plot while I send out Amelia and set her up with a Calm Mind.  Unfortunately, he sets up a second time and strikes with a critical hit Thunderbolt, knocking poor Amelia out.  I send out Falcone, who goes for the critical hit Sucker Punch, knocking out Raichu and taking some blood.  Arc sends out Jolteon, who also falls to Falcone's mighty Sucker Punch.  He sends out Noivern, but Falcone simply doesn't give a fuck as he strikes with ANOTHER Sucker Punch, clocking Noivern out.  He sends out Exploud, but nope!  Another kill for Falcone as he Sucker Punches it down.  He sends out Ampharos, and says that I've got a good showing, but tells me not to think he's going off the air just yet.  He Mega Evolves Ampharos into... Mega Ampharos!  Buuuuuuut the match is already over.  After wiping all of Ampharos' other brethren, Falcone immediately wipes the floor with Ampharos with a blood-sucking, five-star finisher Sucker Punch.  With all of Arclight's Pokemon defeated, I win the battle!

 

 

Arc apologizes to Adrienn, and says that it's his turn now.  He says that at least this way, winner and loser alike, we can both take pride in knowing that we did everything we could.  He tells me to go get them, and calls me a hero.  Just then, my cell door opens, and Arc falls below as the tiles open.  I then head upstairs into the next room.

 

I head into the next room, and it is another puzzle like the one before.  I make my way across the spinners and tiles, and find the PULSE Read-out 01, updating the PULSE Dex!  I read it, and it's... Magnezone.

 

 

The very first PULSE...  Magnezone.  It created ZEL.  This must be what's reproducing the PULSE machines!  And it obeys only them, hmm...  How strange...  This is most likely where they've been hiding it all this time!

 

 

Eventually, I make to the next room, and when I do, I witness a battle between Ame and Lin, Alolan Ninetales vs. Hydreigon.  Ame is shocked that Hydreigon actually lived through an attack that probably should have fainted it, and Lin sees that the so-called "Champion" is this weak.  How can anybody be anymore stronger than Ame?  She's the CHAMPION.  And have you seen the trainers here?  Nope!  She tells Hydreigon to finish the job with Flash Cannon, and Alolan Ninetales is defeated through an attack sequence as the screen flashes.  Ame returns it to its Pokeball, and Lin declares "Checkmate."  She orders Hydreigon to end it, as Hydreigon flies towards Ame and...  Oh Lord... I can't watch!

 

 

It charges and eats Ame's head...  IS THIS MY PRIZE FOR WINNING THOSE BATTLES?!  THAT'S HORRIBLE!

 

 

Ame falls to the floor headless.  The music changes into something more somber, and she returns Hydreigon to its Pokeball as she moves over to Ame.

 

 

"Today, the heart of Reborn falls.  How marvelous.  And how droll."

 

 

She walks back to the center, looks down at me, and leaves.  The doors open, and I run over to the fallen Amethyst.  I check to see if any of her Pokeballs remain, and they seem to have been taken...  I kneel to the floor, and shed a tear for the fallen Champion.

 

 

 

Amethyst...  You were a proud, heroic leader.  You rebuilt this city when it was desperately in a time of need, and you heralded as its Champion.  I wish I could have risen to the top to fight you, but not like this...  Because you're dead, Lin is the "Champion" now, and Bennett has a secure spot in the League.  There is almost no way to take it all back.  There is no way to change the past...

 

But I can change today.  I can change today so that I can make a better future.  Lin, you will pay.  You will pay the cost as steep as you gave Amethyst.  With your life.  And I will make sure that once I take your head, I will show it off to all of Team Meteor, so that they know their "Champion" has fallen just as ours has.  I will make you my bitch.  You will have nothing left.  Not even a proper grave for all of your hopes and dreams.  You will shatter.  You will break.  And you will fall.  I will personally make sure of that.

 

 

 

As I leave Ame's lifeless body behind, I head deeper in Team Meteor's toughest base yet.  I make my way through the maze, and heal my Pokemon with the light shard.  Eventually, I find more stairs.

 

 

As soon as I get upstairs to the highest floor, I find ZEL arguing about something to themselves, as well as the PULSE that's keeping them together, PULSE-Magnezone.  Sparks flying, wires everywhere and all.  Lumi is trying to calm down Zero, while I walk over.  I hear Zero ask Eve what the hell did she mess up so badly.  Eve tells Zero that this wasn't a user error, and that some kind of corrupted program must have been injected in the system.  Zero concludes that her security was just shit.  Lumi yells at Zero, telling him to stop blaming Eve because she doesn't see him helping.  He quickly tells her to shut up, and asks Eve if the data can be repaired or not.  Eve reports that all PULSE2 and Arc-PULSE data have been left unaltered.  However, the PULSE-Magnezone damage is irreparable, and she will need to rewrite it.  Lumi is concerned, because if Magnezone is damaged-- Zero cuts them off, saying that there's no time to rewrite it, stating that Lin wanted all the PULSEs out of here hours ago.  Eve is aware, hence why the other projects have been safely relocated.  However, she says that Magnezone cannot be moved under the certain circumstances, and the timing could not be worse.  Zero thinks that Lin must have known this was coming, and bets it has something to do with the hero brigade she had hauled in here.  He assumes that we're plotting to destroy Magnezone like all the other ones.  Just then, he spots me.  "Speak of the devil."  Eve says that it's too late already, and Lumi asks me if I've really come to destroy everything here.

 

 

What the fuck?  No!  I'm not a monster like some people who go around savagely ripping heads off!  FUCK YOU, LIN.

 

 

Zero, however, thinks I'm lying, and says that they know all about my little hacking scheme too.  Try talking to Terra, maybe SHE was the one who entered your system.  She does have a way of fucking shit up, you know!  Maybe Lin hacked the system to get Terra out of the digital world.  Why don't you ask Lin?   He says that there's no way in hell I'm going to get away with this, and Eve tells him to control his temper.  She tells him that Lin requested that I not be harmed.  Odd...  Wouldn't she WANT to kill me?  What role do I play in all of this?  He agrees, but he's not just going to sit back and let me do whatever I want with his projects.  Lumi defends Eve by asking HIS projects?  She defends Eve by saying that she is the one thad does all the hard work, and he just bullies her all the time.  Zero tells her to just stop talking and fight already.

 

 

Eve, Lumi, you're going to be okay.  Zero, you REALLY need to learn some manners and give credit to where it's due!  If I have to take down PULSE-Magnezone and free you from your burdens, I will!

 

vsTrainer0.png.546f20b9067b47977bbb7e4b6148b068.pngvs.png.fa779e7deea06f1a0131c54153205bd4.pngvsTrainer95.png.46dee90a8a0305dd55084eb86c738ca1.png

 

ZEL sends out Aurorus.  More specifically, Lumi does, while I send out Fighting-Goddard.  Goddard strikes Aurorus down with Multi-Attack, but it survives with a Focus Sash, allowing it to use Stealth Rocks.  Lumi gives an Ultra Potion, but Goddard still knocks down Aurorus anyway with a critical hit Multi-Attack.  Eve sends out Alakazam, and I send out Falcone.  Falcone strikes with Sucker Punch, knocking Alakazam down.  Eve then sends out Espeon, and Falcone knocks it down too.  Lumi sends out Glaceon, but it actually survives Falcone's Sucker Punch, and freezes him to death with Blizzard.  No more bloodshed for you, buddy.  I send out Auriol, who Swords Dances as Lumi heals Glaceon with an Ultra Potion.  Damn, Lumi, wasting all of Zero's Ultra Potions so he doesn't use any.  I see how it is!  Auriol strikes Glaceon down with Close Combat, and Zero sends out Umbreon.  Auriol pummels Umbreon with Close Combat, beating him down.  In a last ditch effort, he sends out PULSE-Magnezone, who is unleashed by Lumi, who says that if they're going to get through this, they need its help.  With each eye wielding the energy of Zero, Eve, and Lumi, I take it down once and for all with another Close Combat from Auriol.  With ZEL defeated once and for all, I win the battle!

 

 

With that all said and done, Eve has final words to say to Lumi.

 

 

"Lumi, regardless of what happens now-- please remember that I will always, always love you."

 

 

Lumi quickly runs over to Magnezone, who seems to be dying from the aftermath.  She is horrified, and begs it to be okay.  She tries to make out words, but then...

 

 

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!

 

 

Just then, Magnezone explodes, shaking the whole room into disarray.  The backup generator turns on, and ZEL is knocked unconscious.  The PULSE-Magnezone lies in ruin, reading "PxLS* 01".  Looks like some of it was blown away in the explosion.  With Magnezone gone, I walk over to wake ZEL up.  Zero is the one who wakes up, and hears that it's so quiet.  He wonders what happened to the PULSE, and asks Lumi and Eve if they lost hearing during the explosion.  However... Lumi and Eve are nowhere to be seen.  Or heard.  He realizes they're gone, and yells at them to say something.   He realizes that Magnezone is truly gone, and also realizes that he is alone.  Horrified, he repeatedly says this in a moment of insanity, and then he says he is empty.  Having fully realized that he is completely alone, he says that he needs to get to Agate, and he quickly leaves. 

 

 

Zero...  I honestly feel sorry for you at this point.  You lost two people who you were connected to, and I hope whatever it is you find at Agate, it's worth it.  As for Lumi and Eve...  I have a feeling we will meet again.

 

 

I head down to the lower floor again, and flip the switch.  I move left on the conveyor belt, and head to the next room.  Trapped with nowhere else to go, I hit the switch.  The doors open, and so do the three in front of me.  Out comes Victoria, Arclight, and Adrienn.  Both Victoria and Arc fall to the floor, and Adrienn is unscathed.  Adrienn was not ready to ride that ride, and Victoria asks if it's over.  Adrienn asks if Arclight is okay, and Victoria says that everything hurts.  She thought it was going to be the end for her.  Adrienn tries to wake up Arc, as it's no time for a nap, but...  Xe sees something horrible, and turns away.  Victoria asks if he's dead, and we check on him.  Adrienn says he's not, which is the good news.  Victoria is horrified that they tore out his eye, which is the bad news.  Victoria screams why, and Adrienn says that based on what Lin said to us, xe would reason that is his "penalty".  Xe says that xe must have gotten lucky.  After Arc went ahead, the floor of the cage xe was in became super-heated.  Even though it hurt, xe was fine thanks to the help of xyr Pokemon.  Victoria still wonders what the point of this was, and Adrienn cuts her off, wondering if anyone has seen Ame, as we're missing someone.  I have...  She's dead, jim...  I watched her get murdered with my own two eyes!  Adrienn horrified at the news, but then calmly says it's up to us, then.  Victoria doesn't understand that if they wanted to stop us, why didn't they do it yet.  She asks why not just kill us and be done with it.  Adrienn reasons that the only thing xe can think of is in order to send a message, which REALLY pisses Victoria off, because they didn't give Kiki a message, and she didn't get the chance to live.  She beats the wall, and wonders why she should have to be the one to live.  Face it Victoria, if you were the dead one, we'd have two dead people with no Sensei.  She was already dying, you know.  She tells us not to get her wrong, she's already livid with Team Meteor for everything they've done.  She will never forgive Cal for siding with them for even a second.  But most of all, she's furious with herself for not being able to stop it.

 

I agree with you, Victoria!  I wasn't able to stop Hydreigon from brutally devouring Ame's head, but am I upset?  A little, but I'm trying to move on from that.  I've already vowed to make Lin pay, for not only our sake, but for all the other lives she's ruined.  We're in this together, you hear? 

 

Adrienn consoles Victoria, saying that xe cannot pretend to know what her story is, or even what really happened, but xe knows this:

 

 

"We cannot blame ourselves in the present for the mistakes we did in the past.  Down there, outside... There's truly a wonderful city.  It is, even now, lumbering, insurmountable, putrid, horrifying, unknowable... ...but still altogether wonderful.  And not a day goes by that I don't think, for the past how many years that did not exist for me, if I had been here, maybe I could have kept things stitched together long enough that would have ever happened.  Maybe this city would still be the shining paradise that it is now only in our memories.  If I hadn't made a trivial mistake of falling into a fairy-ring-- But no.  Those thoughts will not fix the city.  They will not bring those we've lost back.  And they will not help us to move forward.  We must choose to move forward.  And we'll drag the world along with us, even if it's kicking and screaming the whole way.  You have that power too.  So, will you help me?"

 

 

Victoria is shocked at the large pep talk, and silently says that she is tired of trying to follow in the footsteps of the dead.  But someone has to lead this city now, and Adrienn says for them to do it together.  All of us.  Victoria agrees, but says that we must first find a way out of here.  Adrienn goes to pick up Arc, and asks where to.  Victoria sees that the door just opened, right after I flipped the switch and freed them.  Adrienn says that sounds like a plan as good as any, and we all leave.  Together.

 

 

Finally, we can put Devon Corp. to rest.  To putting the past behind us!

 

 

When we head outside, we find ourselves in a corner of North Obsidia Ward, which confuses all of us.  Why.  How.  It looked like we were all on top of Devon Corp.  Believe me though, I would have known if there were stairs.  I was at the top, and there was nothing of significance up there.  Victoria asks Adrienn what exactly happened when xe was with Ame.  Adrienn says that when Arc sent the signal, they entered through the front as planned.  There was the expected resistance, but then as soon as they were finished dealing with them, the exits sealed, and it was some kind of gas trap.  Xe doesn't remember what happened after that.  Victoria recalls that when she was trying to keep a path clear for me, another group of Meteors came from out of nowhere and knocked her out.  Adrienn deduces that after rendering each of us unconscious, they transported us to this building.  Victoria beats her up because again, she was unable to stop it.  However, she realizes that Kiki was also weak, her body was killing itself.  Kiki couldn't stop that, and she's not sure if she ever truly accepted it.  She then fully realizes how the student becomes the master now, and that they have a lot of work to do.  Adrienn agrees, and Victoria says that despite all of us being so pitifully weak, to look how far we've come.  We all take a look at the city, and promise to protect it.  Adrienn sees that this building was a cover for a Meteor facility too, and that's a lead, with whoever being responsible for this probably having ties to Team Meteor.  Xe says that those records should be at the Grand Hall, and Victoria says that she'll take care of those and inform the other staff there about what's happened.  Adrienn says xe'll get Arc into medical care and organize a party to search Devon and this building.  The fact that they led us here and then freed us probably means they don't intend to use it anymore, which means there may be something we can still learn.  Xe asks me if I can come by xyr gym later, as xe has one or two requests for me.  Victoria will also be in touch as well.  Adrienn wishes all of us luck, and they leave.  With me on my own, I am free with my thoughts.

 

 

 

So Ame is dead, Eve and Lumi are most likely dead, and Zero has gone completely insane.  Arclight is in medical care after losing an EYE, Victoria has moved on from Kiki's death, and she and Adrienn are both working together to Make Reborn Great Again.  Yup!  Sounds like quite the chapter!  I for one, am glad to have FINALLY solved this Devon Corp. shit.  Since the moment I saw that building, I thought it was suspiciously ran by Team Meteor, and I was right!  Now I'm ready to find the rest of Meteor, take down the rest of their bases, and fuck shit up!  LET'S GOOOOOO!!!!

Chapter LX: A City Reborn, And The Dazzling, Gleaming Adrienn!

 

 

I head my way to the Coral Gym, and the machine is working.  Instead of Ame, I hear Victoria, who has appeared to have taken on Ame's duties, since she's dead.  She doesn't know too much about Adrienn's team or fighting style, but she's heard xe fights in doubles, so I should be ready for it.  She also heard a little bit about xyr gym when some of the students from Apophyll were helping rebuild it.  Adrienn designed it to switch tactics in the middle of a fight.  I can already see the mist in the gym, but the atmosphere xe constructed aside from that is enough to power xyr Pokemon regardless.  She says I might not want to count on just blowing it away, but then I might have to be ready for that anyways.  Timing and adaptability should be key, so I'll really think about when using my strongest Pokemon.  That's all she has for me, and she leaves.

 

I talk to Adrienn, who sees that I'm here already.  Xe says it's okay, xe just wasn't prepared.  Xe reveals what xyr request is, and... xe wants to battle me.  It would be an official gym match, and given recent circumstances, the actual status of the Reborn League might be unclear.  However, Victoria and xe will handle the administration.  As for the champion...  That's xyr second request.  Xe wants me to become the new champion.  That might have been my goal in the first place, but now xe thinks it's especially important.  Xe would like it if it was me in particular because from what xe heard, I've been the one who's done so much for Reborn's sake.  Of course, it still entails collecting all the badges and defeating the Elite Four.  Probably no one would accept my new role otherwise.  And Lin... Xe doesn't go there, and even if she defeated Ame, xe personally will refuse to acknowledge her as champion.  But we need someone to stand up to her, and I'm our best hope for that.

 

 

After everything Team Meteor has done...  After everything Lin has done...  I will take up that mantle.  I will defeat Lin, and I WILL be champion.  Amethyst would have wanted it, right?

 

 

Xe thanks me, and to start, xe would like to have our battle now.  However, xe's a bit swamped.  Xe's got a handful of workstations that are shorthanded, and not to mention planning the recovery party for Devon Corp and what xe's begun begun referring to as the Devonyx building.  It's going to take xyr a small bit to get these sorted, but xe could use my help too.  Xe wants me to go explore the city and look for anybody who might be willing to lend a hand, xe would really appreciate it.  If we can at least get five people, that should be enough to work with.  But closer to ten would be ideal, and the difference would be worth my time.  If they wish to volunteer, they should come here to the gym, and xe will handle the rest.  After that's settled, I can battle Adrienn.

 

 

I bet I can find FIFTEEN people.

 

 

I make my way all over the city finding people.  First, I find a woman in the stairway between Obsidia and Coral who's run away from somebody.  I give her something to do.  I then see somebody looking out toward the sea in South Obsidia.  I find a girl in Obsidia Park looking for work too.  I also find a little boy in the library reading books, he gets a job.  I find a socially awkward girl in Jasper, and give her a job. 

 

 

That's five so far...  Ten more to go!

 

 

I then head to Blacksteam Shelter and find someone sitting on a bench over by the room the PULSE-Muk once was, and give him some work.  I head to the Grand Stairway, and in front of it, I see this smartass asshole who doesn't stop bragging about his genius.  He's seriously overcompensating for something.  I force labor upon him, and head to Lapis where I find an old lady by the little park.  I give her something to do with her life, and fly to Beryl.  I find a people-watching person on Beryl Bridge, and give her some work to do.  I find a shop-owner who's looking to repay the favor, so I give him a job.

 

 

That's ten...  Five more to go!

 

 

I decide to take a break and fly to Spinel Town, just to see if it's still suffering the effects of PULSE-Abra.  It turns out that they're adapting quite well, despite a few things still disappearing such as the town's sign.

 

 

What a peaceful, mysterious town.

 

 

I fly back to Reborn City and head to the Onyx Arcade, where I find a guy who's bored with nothing to do.  I give him a job, and also find that the Onyx Ward is a lot more lively than it was.  I go to see what's up, and it appears that the arcades are fully functional again.  Wait a minute!  When I fought those glitches in the computers in Ametrine City, did that fix whatever problems they were having down here?  Heh, I guess I AM the Savior of Reborn.  The Savior of Nerds everywhere.

 

Since I am at Onyx, I head to the Trainer's School, and see that the entrance to Florinia's gym is blocked while she is away.  The girl guarding it asks me for a favor to ask the girl she likes her feelings.  Her crush usually hangs out on the third floor, so I head there.  I guess everyone has been obsessed with me too, because I'm all the gossip at the school.  One even asks for my autograph, which I give, and another even flirts with me.  I learn about terrains, and a girl gives me the Telluric Seed.  Everyone is also happy I beat the shit out of Fern, too.  Yeah, well now he's an even bigger problem since he's with Team Meteor.  If anyone wants to see an encore, I'll happily give you one when I take the barrier down in Calcenon City and beat the shit out of him even more, especially since Florinia's pissed at him.  Speaking of Florinia, it seems like she's behind on some administrative things because she is away.  And to some, I am handsome like a prince, elegant like a queen, five-hundred Pokemon at max level (I only have one, and that is Pyukumuk!)  and even telekinetic powers.  Bitch please, if I had telekinetic powers, Team Meteor would have no chance.  And I'm standing right in front of you!  I head upstairs to find Protective Pads, and can somehow catch another shiny Porygon, so I try to do so, but accidentally kill it.  I already have one, so I don't really need another anyways.  What's strange is that in the Glitch World, Goddard is the steel type, and looks like it's from the Glitch World.

 

I talk to a guy who awkwardly asks me something, but realizes I'm there.  Scared, he backs up, and breaks a plant.  The student yells at me, and tells me not to sneak up on him like that.  He runs away, and the teacher walks up and apologizes.  He says he'll go get a janitor, so he proceeds to do so, opening the doors.  I head back into the sorority dorm of the four gym leaders, and find an interesting piece of literature there.

 

 

On Fairy Tales: "History has a habit of letting little girls wander past the forest's edge, only to be swallowed up by any number of enchantments beyond.  She awakens in a tower,

Stone,

Cold,

Alone. 

A dragon guards her, its fangs bared to the world,

Brimstone breath faithfully reserved for whatever metal-clad ignoramus thinks himself so mighty that even fire may not char his miserable flesh.

But there is only one who can slay the beast:

The one to whom its back is turned."

 

What an interesting story... I wonder if I'll ever experience such a story myself.  I probably might, knowing Titania is a fan of literature.  And she's out in Tourmaline Desert... Deserts have mirages... Who knows.

 

 

I head to the newly opened room, head upstairs, and find a girl sitting on the couch while another one is studying.  I talk to the girl on the couch, and try giving her the sweet heart.  She's flattered, but isn't interested in her, going to go talk to her straight.  She says I should hang on to the chocolate, as it would be a dumb move to eat the chocolate and then letting her down.

 

I head back to the girl, who freaks out, asking if I talked to her yet.  I did, and told her the message.  She gets depressed, and sees that night they spent together on Beryl Bridge meant nothing to her crush, and she thought the girl liked her, but realizes she overthinks things,and wonders why she always falls in love with her friends just over a few precious moments.  She says it's over now, and apologizes I had to hear her whining and poor expectations.  She wants to let it go, and was going to give the girl a present.  She went through a lot of trouble getting it, but she can't do that now.  She gives me something that was for her crush's favorite Pokemon, and says it's an apology.  She says that she has a gym to guard, and that's probably all she'll ever get.  She gives me the INCINIUM-Z, and says she's fine.  Now I want an Incineroar.

 

 

I head outside, and see a group who obsesses over me.  One girl even asks how Amaria is doing.  She's doing great... If you consider losing her memory after jumping off a fucking waterfall into a Water Treatment Center being great, that is.

 

 

I head to Peridot, and find a girl hiding in an alley.  I give her a job, and I also give a guy in one of the buildings nearby a job too.  I fly to Beryl and head just north of it.  I find a bug catcher watching over the city, and give him a job.  I also find a girl who's lost in the alley in Obsidia, and show her da wae to a job.

 

 

I fly back to the Coral Ward and talk to Adrienn.  Xe says that xe just finished assigning the last of our volunteers, and that they've gotten so many thanks to me.  Xe's astounded, but even then, exceeding expectations does seem to be my strong point.  Let's see...  I've found the Reborn City Police force, beaten Solaris, had no children abducted, fought a Ditto Arceus and sided with Radomus, didn't give the Ruby Ring to Blake (Except he stole it anyway, which we got back), and decided not to fight Taka out of mercy.  I think I've exceeded every expectation so far.  Xe thanks me for all my help, and says it must have been really challenging to go out and look for all those people.  It really wasn't that hard.  Ever heard of guides?  Xe gives me the Wise Glasses, an Ability Capsule, and a Star Piece as thanks.  Xe then says it's time for our battle, so xe'll take xyr place in the arena, saying I should take my place when I'm ready to battle.  Adrienn says xe'll be waiting, and takes xyr place, and when I talk to xyr at xyr spot, xe tells me that even though I'm champion-to-be, xe won't hold back, and really wants to enjoy this.

 

 

After training my Pokemon, I head back to the Coral Gym and get into position.  Adrienn asks me if I am ready for our long-awaited match, and I am.  Adrienn is pumped, and says xe's been looking forward to this since the day we met.  Xe calls me "Champion", and has me picturing a scenario.

 

 

"You're in your palace at the Hall of Champions!  A new trainer, Adrienn, has just blown through all of the Elite Four.  Xe intends to challenge and claim your title!  Now you have to fight to defend your honor!  Although the roles are reversed right now, this is still a defining step on that adventure, so come at me with all of that same spirit!  Show me what Reborn's future champion looks like!"

 

 

You know what?  I will.  After I win and beat you, I'm going to give it everything I've got for the rest of the leaders!  Then the Elite Four, and then?  Lin herself.  I've come this far, I'm not backing down now!  Come at me, Adrienn!

Visionary Adrienn sends out Eolande the Granbull and Kailen the Gardevoir, while I send out Amelia and Charles.  Charles tries using Heat Wave, but gets knocked out by Eolande and Kailen afterwards.  I send out Megaman X, and take Eolande down with Meteor Mash.  Adrienn sends out Orphne the Mawile.  Unfortunately for me, Xe Mega Evolves Orphne into... Mega Mawile, which might be a threat.  Amelia goes down from Orphne's Iron Head after I heal both her and Megaman X.  I send out Corey, and Megaman X misses Orphne's Sucker Punch because I heal it.  Kailen goes down from Corey's critical hit Poison Jab.  Adrienn sends out Pryderi the Whimsicott, and it attacks Corey with Mist Ball, knocking him down.  However, send out  Charles after reviving him, and while Pryderi uses Tailwind, creating the Fairy Tale Field, making Charles' Heat Wave useless.  I switch out Charles for Pierce, while after taking an X-Defend, Megaman X knocks out Pryderi with Meteor Mash.  Adrienn sends out Orin the Togekiss, and it becomes a long battle of trying to stall Tailwind out.  I keep healing both Pierce and Megaman X, while Megaman X has a X-Special Defend as well, eventually, Pierce goes down, which is fine, as they are slowed down from his Icy Wind, and the Tailwind goes away.  I send out Auriol, who knocks Orin down in two Ice Punches, while Megaman X keeps beating down Orphne, who gets healed by Adrienn's Ultra Potions.  Adrienn sends out Ryannon the shiny Reborn-themed Florges after Orphne knocks out Auriol with Iron Head.  I send out Charles, and revive Corey while Orphne is finished off by Megaman X's Meteor Mash.  Adrienn says that xe hasn't had a battle this exhilarating in years- even by xyr twisted timeline!  Charles and Megaman both finish off Ryannon together with Strength and Meteor Mash, and with Adrienn's Fairy Tale Pokemon defeated, I win the battle!

 

 

Adrienn knew xe was right about me, and walks over to me, saying that the champion keeps their throne for another day.  Just then, a box appears, and xe tells me that inside contains two presents: the first being the Amaranth Badge, which Adrienn promises that all Pokemon up to Level 85 will listen to me faithfully.  Furthermore, this badge slightly increases the Special Defense of all of my Pokemon, which isn't bad for a Champion to have.  The second present is TM 99 Dazzling Gleam.  After all, I've got the whole world to flash to, any why not be a bit flashy?  Xe says that it's time to come back to reality, as there's still a lot of things to do for all of us.  Victoria and xyr will take care of everything here in the city, but they're counting on me to take care of Team Meteor.  Adrienn also reveals that just a little bit ago, xe was notified that Grandview Station has reopened.  Although the tickets out of the region will probably sell out quickly, Adrienn has actually put in a special order with them for me.  If I go there, I can go to Tourmaline Desert, no charge to me.  If what xe heard is right, then not only is my next badge there, but also one of the crystal keys as well.  It's best that I can get to all of those before Team Meteor does.  Adrienn still has a lot of work to do, so xe takes her leave, but not before wanting me to know that this challenge has been a pleasure, and xe will always be cheering for me.  Xe then takes xyr leave.

 

 

Now if this was Episode 16 I was playing, I would be seeing the conclusion of Episode 16, with the teaser for the next one.

 

 

Episode 17: Rust Thicker Than Water "Do you understand now?  Steel will not make me bleed.  And your shining armor is but tinfoil to the brimstone breath of the New World.

 

 

 

Now if this chapter is anything, it is nothing but a teaser for the next episode.  The one I am CURRENTLY on at this point.  Once I finish some unfinished business in the city, I'll be making my way out to Tourmaline Desert.  Titania, I just hope you're okay!

The team leveled up quite a bit, and Falcone is a MURDERER.  Even when faced against a team of near-Electric types, he still whooped ass.  Everyone else did considerably well too!

Chapter LXI: Cleaning Up The Rest Of Reborn City (MRGA), Lore Abound, And The Grand Reopening Of Grandview Station!

 

 

Taking up Adrienn's word, I fly over to Peridot and find that Grandview Station has officially be reopened.  I talk to the trainer outside, and he wonders what the champion is like.  Too soon, my friend... Too soon...  I head inside, and find a construction worker from the Reborn Construction Company, who says that after completing their last task, revitalizing the Railnet,  they're raring up to hire up and take on even grander designs.  He says if me or anyone I know is looking for a hands-on career to shape this city, they should apply.  He hands me a few applications, and I head to 7th Street.

 

I find Mannie first, and give him the construction application.  He is happy to see a paying job, and goes to fill it out right away.  I find DeFacto, and procure for him an application to Beryl Library.  He is intrigued, and acquiesces to the idea of having a job there.  He leaves, and I go find Pierce.  I give him an application to Apophyll Academy, and he silently takes it and leaves for Apophyll.  I find Razzy, and show him an application to Sweet Co.  At first, he is bored at the idea, but then realizes it is connected to the Sweet Kiss Candy Shop, and remembers the Red-Hots his grandma used to make applesauce with.  He readily accepts and leaves for Sweet Co., leaving all but Archer.

 

I find Archer, and tell him everyone all has jobs now.  He says it is just him left, and supposes he can find a marketable job.  His strengths lie in team coordination, research and analysis.  I show him the Silph Co. application, and he sees that it requires two years of management experience.  He says that the Aqua Gang has been a profitable business, but re-brands the now-empty group to Aqua Incorporated.  It will do, as he can is more than capable of brushing aside the details.  He says the job will suit him perfectly, and he thanks me.  He says I have been a true friend to them all, and gives me a final parting gift.  He says it was a Pokemon they liberated from the Magma Gang, with the item its holding as a personal selection from him.  He gives me a Litten, which I name Maxwell.  He bids me farewell, and tells me not to mind if he uses me as a personal reference.  I'm pretty sure he knows I'm the one saving Reborn...

 

 

After he leaves, I breed Maxwell, and get myself a SHINY Litten after two eggs.  I name the newborn Litten Aslan, and train him up to speed.  I evolve Aslan into Torracat first, then Incineroar.  After I train it, I decide to participate in the funding of making Reborn great again.  I start by donating $60,000 for redevelopment in South Obsidia.  This covers the project, and he'll let everyone know that it's been fully funded so they can work on it right away.  However, since I am the sole proprietary founder for at least one project, they would like to extend to me their warmest thanks.  Per policy, they would like to invite me to meet the employees who work so hard with my money to keep Reborn City thriving.  Their employee area is in the basement below here, and as a premier modern founder, I will now be permitted access at will to it.  All they ask is that I be courteous to the employees working there.  They thank me again for always looking out for Reborn City, and they open their doors to me.

 

 

What is this business, a Patreon business?  Oh wait, it would be per month that I would have to pay $60,000 if it WAS a Patreon.  I can't afford that, and I certainly could NEVER afford that in real life!

 

However, I talk to one of the employees, who sees who I am, and reveals that Adrienn has given me access to the employee section ANYWAYS, so I didn't even have to pay for it!  FUN!  Oh well, I would have done so anyways from the bottom of my heart.  Make Reborn Great Again!  He apologizes for the miscommunication, and I head downstairs.  I find Victoria, who is sitting at one of the desks down in the office.  She's surprised that they let me in, not that that's a problem, as she could use the company.  She finds herself completely exhausted from doing mind-numbing desk work, as she's used to being out there and moving her body.  Giiiiiiirl, the way you say that suggests you've been working at the club...  But I digress.  All of this computer stuff is a drag for her, and she wonders how anyone can just sit here all day.  Not only that, but the paperwork never ceases.  She wonders if she should just call Julia and have her bring some of her strongest coffee.  Even one of the employees also seems to try and get her out for coffee, but drinks can't solve the fact that she just misses her school.

 

I learn that six more people are coming from the Kanto-Johto area, and wonder who they could be.  The inspector has also been away again, vanishing every three months for the two he's there.  I head to the inspection room, and find the Ampharosite sitting on a desk!  I leave the room and talk to another employee, who discusses that the proposed Railnet would feature eight stations, one for each ward, but questions that placing one in Opal Ward is inefficient considering the water's placement and underground structure of the Grand Hall.  He wonders if there is really a need for an Opal Station when Grandview is so close by.  I go to Ame's old office and click a button at her computer.  Next thing I know, the whole Grand Hall is filled with Alolan Vulpix!  Not only that, but there is a whole room filled with them!  Be free, my little snow fox friends!!!  I also pick up the Lopunnite before leaving the Grand Hall.  However, when I come back, I find the Alolan Vulpix have already flooded the halls.  Even Victoria is counting Vulpix in her sleep!

 

 

I head down to 7th Street again and enter the Subseven Sanctum again.  When I use the key that Boo Boo Keys had, I enter a room that has a book, a few items, and six Arceus statues in no particular order: Green, Ruby, Amethyst, Gold, Sapphire, and Silver.  Just what the hell is this room?  I pick up the items,  which are a Dark Material piece and Field Effect Readout 29, which is Holy Field.  I then read the notebook that is on the table...

 

 

"Place faith in the Lord, and so shall he in you."  This must be Elias's journal...  Very well, I will read on.

 

"Place animosity upon the Lord, and so shall he upon you. This lesson is not an easy one to learn.  Some will never fully grasp it.  Many will only pretend to.  Today, I would like to share with you the story of how I came to learn this."  Yup, this is definitely his journal.

 

"I was born to the purpose of Arceus, but I was born blind.  Growing up as a boy with no sight in a world like this is no easy task, but of course, I learned to take care of myself.  For some time, that was the only thing I could be proud of.  My family was an old one, back from the days when Reborn City was no more than a village around a crater, both of which are since lost underground."  Is he from the same group as Solaris...?

 

"When first Arceus' birthplace crashed upon our world, one family set about enshrining it.  They would protect it from the world so that its purity might remain ever intact.  This was their life's calling.  And this was not my family.  Mine came years later, and, finding light in their purpose, swore to serve that family.  So it came to be that each generation of my house served theirs.  Until it came to me, a defective blind child, who would do more harm than good as a servant.  The man to whom I should have been sworn was born some ten years after me.  His name was Solaris."  YUP, THIS MAKES A LOT OF SENSE NOW.

 

"He was a raucous youth, never quite satisfied with his life's charge of protecting an old monument.  As I understand, for most of his life he resented this purpose, lashing out, as many of the young do, against Arceus."  If Solaris hated Arceus so much back then, then why does he have such religious goals?

 

"I could understand his feelings.  Why, I asked myself, if Arceus is so great, should he have made me this way?  Why did I have to suffer?  Why did I have to serve?  As it turned out, Solaris would be the one to show me the answer.  A failed vassal, I dared not approach him, and though our fathers were close, mine never allowed me to see the young master as I was growing up.  It was not until I was well into a miserable adulthood that we first met.  Solaris knew of me, of course.  He knew my family was due by lineage to serve his, and he had heard of the blind man, whom others had deemed unfit for his presence.  And, as he did with all things, he rebelled.  He offered his hand to me.  I took it with an oath of servitude."  So THIS is how he joined Solaris...

 

"This was not a chance I should have been given.  So, I pushed myself as hard as I could to try and have value to my master.  But both of us were lordless, lawless men.  He had no purpose to serve but fighting his own, and we found common ground therein.  Nevertheless, Arceus would reach us eventually.  For many years, Solaris questioned, 'Just what does the meteor need to be protected from?'  It was already locked up with the four crystal keys.  And who would want to defile some old rock anyway?  This was a lesson he learned the hard way, when his parents were both killed by an assailant seeking those very keys.  The young master was too late to save them, but just in time to avenge them.  So he bludgeoned the man who had claimed the keys until his arms were too battered to hold on to them anymore, And until his lips were too loose to keep secrets.  'Why?!', Solaris cried, over and over.  The assailant would tell him rumours he had never believed, of a great power locked within the meteor, lying dormant for years.  Whether it was true or not, the thief believed it, and so he grasped at it.  'Why?!', Solaris continued to cry.  And so he said, on and on until daybreak, thrashing against the culprit's body for long after there was any soul still there to know it.  He was no longer asking anyone other than himself.  Why had he refused to listen to his parents?  Why had he not seen the danger they were in?  Why could he not save them?  And believing that he had led to the death of his own parents, For the first time, he strode forward to meet his life's purpose.  The Lord will punish those who lack faith.  This is what is to be learned from Solaris' tale."  Holy shit...  Solaris is Holy Batman, and Elias is Alfred.  That's at least what the story feels like to me.  It does explain why Solaris became extremely religious.

 

"My own awakening came a number of years later.  When my master walked the path of the Lord, so naturally did I have to as well.  I would follow my friend, but in regards to faith, my service was half-hearted.  Solaris recognized this, and one day confronted me about it.  After some discussion, he offered the Emerald Key he should have himself vanguarded with his life, in return for my faith.  He wished for me not just to serve him, but to personally share his burden.  I accepted this, and resolved to place every ounce of my trust in the Lord, and my friend.  When I awoke the next morning, the key still clutched tightly against my chest, I was assaulted by a phenomenon I had never experienced before.  Lights, dazzling colors, shapes so blurred I could scarcely recognize the forms I was so used to navigating around otherwise.  Sight.  There are no words to describe the feeling of seeing my master's face for the first time.  Or that of seeing my own face.  That of finally being able to really understand what words like 'golden' and 'light' meant.  Before, they were just dreams, but I knew that the Lord-- and my trust in him-- had made it real.  The Lord will reward those with true faith."  This is what is to be learned from Elias' tale.  This is how he gained sight, and how he serves not only his master and friend Solaris but Arceus as well.

 

"It has been many years since then.  I am constantly assaulted with sorrow and worry for the sake of my daughter, and for his son both.  I do not wish them to receive any such punishment as my friend did.  I wish them both all the blessings of the Lord they have turned from.  I fear, too, for each of you.  Though less so, than for each of the heretics above.  The city's miserable state is no doubt a result of its divergence from the Lord.  Therefore, I implore you, Please, trust in Arceus.  Please, guide others to trust in Arceus.  Under the Lord's light, may we all see bright futures.  Thank you."

 

Holy shit...  I'm gonna place my thoughts at the end of the chapter, but damn, that was a lot to take in.

 

 

As I leave the sanctum, I hear that it is time for worship, even though nobody is here.  I leave, and decide to look for Corey's Pokemon.  I fly to Beryl Ward, and go to Citrine Mountain, where I find... another Croagunk.  Unlike the other, this is actually his Croagunk this time.  It sees the silver ring and joins me in obedience.  I find a Smoochum in the mountain as well, under attack by an angry Beartic.  I beat it with my team, and Smoochum clings to me, joining my team.  I head to Beryl Cave, where I find Corey's Nidorina beating its head furiously at a wall in a cage.  It sees the silver ring, and joins my team in obedience as well.  I then fly to Agate Circus, go all the way down to Celestinine Mountain, and enter Citrine Mountain from that side.  I move a boulder with Charles' Strength and find Corey's Skuntank guarding something.  Although it is bored, it sees the silver ring and challenges me to fight.  I catch it and grab the silver card it was guarding.  With that all said and done, I fly to Beryl Ward.

 

 

I enter Corey's gym and then go in his room.  I see a card slot, and scan the silver card, opening a secret door.  I go into the secret room where I find his study, which has a purple machine and a blue machine.  I find a Toxic Orb on the desk, but I also find his journal on the desk...

 

 

"For Heather, By the time you read this, you will be strong.  I was not raised to be strong.  I was raised to be naive, and I suffered for it.  I shall not make this same mistake with you.  Reality is cruel.  This, I learned the hard way.  This, you have grown to learn from the second you were born.  I told you long ago how she passed.  I did not mention who was responsible for it.  Team Meteor sought to cleanse the city and restore it to its former heritage-- a holy site.  To this end, they take no prisoners.  I joined their ranks to sabotage them.  Specifically, I sought the head of the man who killed your mother.  He was after an artifact I foolishly bestowed upon her.  He saw her life as a small price to pay for it.  I will see to it that he pays what's due in his own blood.  If you will join me, I will have you.  It is your right as her daughter.  The man ended her life in poison.  When I discovered her IV was laced, I struck out.  One of the few things I can still take pride in is that man's scream as he pulled the syringe from his bleeding eye.  He lived, but his wound is a mark on his life.  Since then, I coveted the venom that ended your mother Elena's dear life.  From it, I have made poisons to corrupt.  Poisons to control.  And poisons to deliver retribution upon the guilty.  My beautiful daughter, we will settle this together."

 

So the one who killed Elena is... Sirius.  Not only was he the one who burned down Belrose Manor, but... he also killed Corey's wife and Helen's mother...  He is the reason Corey committed suicide.  I'll go into more detail at the end as usual, but when I find Sirius again, he'll get what he deserves.

 

 

I leave Corey's gym and fly down to Peridot Ward.  After all the lore bombs that were dropped, I think I'm ready to head to the newly rebuilt Grandview Station.  Time to go to Tourmaline Desert!  With that said, I hop on the train and reflect in my thoughts over everything I just learned today...

 

 

 

Trevore's End Chapter Thoughts

 

HOLY SHIT,  a lot went down.  I just thought that Solaris and Elias were nut cases, but they actually do care about their world, and I kinda do feel bad that Lin took over Team Meteor.  Do I think their actions are morally good?  Probably not, but I know that they do have hearts somewhere.  I respect their goals, however, as I think that their goal for restoring the old world is noble in its own right.  I mean, Lin just wants to use Arceus for her own purpose, you just want to worship Him again.  Same with Elias.  He GAINED SIGHT just by believing in Arceus and Solaris, who WILLINGLY GAVE HIM THE EMERALD KEY.  If this isn't a beautiful Batman-Alfred relationship, then I don't know what it is.  Not only is Solaris kind to Elias, but he BECAME HIS FRIEND.  Nobody wanted anything to do with Elias, except for him.  I applaud that Elias is not only loyal to Solaris to the end, but Solaris is also loyal to Elias, and they BELIEVE in each other.  What were once two lordless, lawless men were now both servants of Arceus.

 

Corey also went through a lot too...  When Elena died, he joined Team Meteor to PROTECT her and the Ruby Ring, not to help them.  He joined to sabotage their schemes, and who knows, maybe he had a plan to sabotage the PULSE-Tangrowths?  I think he is not a villain at all, but rather, a hero to some degree.  As for Sirius... may he burn in hell once I get my hands on him.  He killed for the Ruby Ring, the Sapphire Bracelets, and he somehow knows Anna and Noel's father?  Why are you after these keys?  Why are you always the one who ends up killing for them?  Why are you loyal to Lin, and not Solaris?

 

Taka and Luna...  I worry for you both too...  Luna, not so much because I think you're doing fine, but Taka...  He gave the Sapphire Bracelets without a second thought and has been kind to me throughout the entire game.  I wanted to help him back at the Water Treatment Center, but I cannot just let him continue to go down this path if he does not want to.  I do not know how Solaris is feeling, but I hope both you and Luna are safe.

 

With that said, onward to Tourmaline Desert!

 

 

Team Updates

I am putting Corey in Team Reborn, mostly because he only joined Team Meteor to sabotage them in the end.  He was just as much of a victim to their schemes as the rest of Team Reborn.  He tried to protect Heather, and in the end, died because he could not take it anymore.

Just giving a heads up, but I'm still kicking!  School has been beating me up, so I haven't had much time to do anything, but now that I have a better laptop, things will run much more smoothly.  Before I make a new chapter, I still have to finish the current one.  I haven't been exactly making them all in one go as I used to.  But I'm still alive!

Holy gazooks, it has been forever, hasn't it?  Never fear!  For I am here!

 

To be honest with ya, I've been quite busy trying to just get done with MSU.  I WILL say that I have actually been working on a new chapter though, just in a different document so I don't lose everything.

 

I know it might be spoilers, but I'm currently wandering around with Taka in the story.  I did just about everything else I believe, but I admit, I'm currently stuck in the trainyard...  And I don't really say this often, but um... Anybody got a solution?

 

To be honest, I'm very thankful that there is still some interest (I'm so sorry for being late!).  I hope to find more time to finish the game.  I have been bored recently, so you my friend might have given me inspiration again!

 

Soon tm

Glad to hear that. I caught some interest for this and I though, you left like a few other with some interesting stuff, before abandoning these.

 

Glad you're aren't like them😁

Forgive my tone earlier, I did not mean to be so corny with my message (XD)!  Again, I am just really glad to hear that people still have an interest in reading these.  I don not know if anyone remembers, There were a few other projects like this one that I was working on, like the main games (and then some), but I had to scrap just about near all of them just for the sake of finishing this one!  Shame on me for not sticking through.  I think a big part of it was "how can I make this story ten times better?"  I originally thought of just reworking the entire story from the ground up in honor of the newer chapters and how they change things, but I think I'll save that idea for another story...  I kinda want to respect and honor the older episodes, as I believe that Reborn certainly has come along way, along with other projects!  I have a few ideas for how I can connect the stories together, and I am hoping they stick well (I kinda thought of these on the fly while working in the cold, but trust me, I think it will be worth it!).

 

I will have to find time to get cracking again, I have been away for far too long.  Originally, I was going to put the trainyard in the same chapter as the rest of the stuff I did with Taka, but I think I have an idea for what I can put in instead of that (The trainyard stuff will be moved to the next chapter).  Let's just say that things will become quite... interesting.

Now, it might look a bit choppy (I have been working in parts, very slow I know).  However, I hope to fine-tune it at some point (Most likely when I get home).  With that said, the show must go on!*

 

The chapter is now fixed!  (Hopefully)

 

 

Chapter LXII: Exploration of Tourmaline Desert, And the Truth Of Taka’s Mysterious Ancient Family!

 

 

Taking my seat on the Grandview train, the door opens, and the train speeds off to Tourmaline Desert.

 

 

Titania…  I hope you are okay!  I need to make sure those Sapphire Bracelets are safe!

 

 

When I get off the train, I find myself in the middle of nowhere.  However, a familiar lad is hiding from a tree, and he really hoped I wouldn’t show up.  I turn around, and he gets out of the tree and surprises me.  He turns away, and apologizes, but he has to stop me here.  He is afraid that if he doesn’t, Team Meteor might get rid of him, saying that there’s no reason for him to stay.  In fact, he thinks they might already… or that she’s already watching us from somewhere.  He reveals that he doesn’t have a choice anymore, as if he ever did.  The battle then begins.

 

 

Taka…  There is still time to leave!  Leave Team Meteor for good and fight alongside me!  We can stand up to your father together!


vsTrainer0.png.546f20b9067b47977bbb7e4b6148b068.pngvs.png.fa779e7deea06f1a0131c54153205bd4.pngvsTrainer97.png.cd27d22f619a14df84b7d816cd2ded91.png

Taka sends out Klefki, while I send out Falcone.  I switch out Falcone with Charles, and he knocks out Klefki with a boosted Heat Wave from the desert’s field, but not before being paralyzed by Klefki’s Thunder Wave.  Taka sends out Minior, while I send out Pierce.  Pierce tries striking Minior down with Metal Claw, but it doesn’t do much damage.  After two Earthquakes from Minior, Pierce is down, so I switch out Pierce for Auriol.  Auriol charges up with Swords Dance, then beats down Minior with Close Combat.  Taka sends out Gliscor, who gets knocked out with an Ice Punch from Auriol.  Taka sends out Chatot, who knocks out Auriol with Heat Wave after taking an Extreme Speed.  I send out Falcone, who gets wiped out from Chatot’s Z-Move, Breakneck Blitz!  I send out Goddard, who finishes it off with Air Slash.  Taka sends out Komala, and I send out Aslan, who knocks out Komala with Cross Chop and Darkest Lariat.  Taka sends out Alolan Exeggutor, knowing that he can’t win, Aslan tries to strike with Flare Blitz, but no luck.  He also strikes with Outrage, but that doesn’t do anything either when Taka finally gives it an Ultra Potion.  Aslan gets knocked out by Exeggutor’s Earthquakes, and Taka gives it ANOTHER Ultra Potion.  However, after a few Air Slashes from Goddard, who I send back out, the mighty Exeggutor is down.  With Taka finally admitting defeat, I win the battle!

 

 

He says that he can’t win against me, and not against them.  He then says that’s it, and turns to say that this is probably the last time I’ll have to deal with him.  He apologizes again, and starts to walk away, but says that I can.  He tells me that I’ve always been standing up to them, and I’ve always been winning.  He turns to ask if I’m going to keep doing that.  Well, knowing that we have definitely had our losses, I would say no, not really.  Taka asks if that is humility or just a joke, and says I’m starting to sound like him.  He admits that maybe we’re not so different, and that maybe… maybe he can be more like me.  He asks where that leaves him, and says that when he goes back a failure again, he won’t get another chance, and that I… I will keep fighting.  He thinks for a minute, and asks if he can come with me.  That’s the spirit!  Tell them to shove it!  I tell him yes, and he walks up to me telling me the plan.

 

 

Here’s Taka’s plan: Taka doesn’t have a single clue, so he’s just gonna follow me.  He’s gonna try to not get in his way, and he stole a bunch of healing items from base before they sent him here to ambush me, so he can heal my Pokemon when needed.  If he can find somewhere safe to hide, he will lay low there for a while.  Hopefully long enough to get off of Lin’s radar.  After that… we’ll fight Team Meteor together.

 

 

Here’s MY plan: We explore the whole fucking desert, grab as much shit as we can, discover as much as we can find, and THEN get off Lin’s radar.  THEN WE KICK METEOR’S ASS.

 

 

He follows my lead, and we are off.  We find some palm trees, but the first one I find is an Alolan Exeggutor!  I accidentally beat it, and Taka is confused, saying that he can’t really blame them, for he too would love to bury himself half-underground and do nothing for hours on end.

 

 

After I take him to a spot where we’re not disturbed, Taka starts asks if I have any idea where we’re going, saying that frankly he’s never in his life known where he was going.  However, he began telling me about things that I might not have heard before.  He admits that it feels wrong traveling with someone who was supposed to be his enemy, but then again, his entire life has been wrong, so this feels right after all.  He then wonders how long it’ll take the others to realize he’s not coming back, if they haven’t already anyway.  He admits that ZEL is going to get chewed out because of him because his father had asked them to keep tabs on me when they weren’t working on the PULSEs.  However, he has also heard Zero’s not doing too well lately.  Speaking of which, he asks if I remember the guy who was with him and ZEL when we fought in Beryl.  Corey?  Yeah, I remember him.  He says that back then, some of the grunts were saying that I killed him.  He says that he wasn’t the friendliest guy.  In fact, he never stayed to talk, or did take orders he didn’t have to, and he argued with Sirius all the time.  But even then… Taka asks if I would do something like that.  Me?  Kill him?  I’m not the killing type of person.  Speaking of which…  I think he dropped his Pokeballs somewhere in Tourmaline Desert!  However, before I start to run to get them, Taka warns me that they have one more base somewhere in the Carnelia region of Reborn, besides Labradorra.  He feels like even if he tells me not to go there, I still won’t listen, but strongly urges that I don’t go.  They’ll probably try and lure me there, and it would be really bad if I went… and he doesn’t mean for Team Meteor.  I heed his warning, and go to find Corey’s dropped Pokeballs.

 

 

Sure enough, we find them over where the Beryl Bridge would be, and I grab his Pokeballs.  Taka wonders if somebody just dropped them all on accident, but that is far beyond the truth…  I find five of them, but Taka and I are shocked to find a sixth one buried in the sand.  It must be his Crobat’s… Or maybe the one that is separated from the others at the other rock.  Taka says that his heart is racing from escaping like this.  Well, either that, or a heat stroke.  He says that Team Meteor’s track record isn’t exactly the best, but they’re still the only family he’s ever had.  He says that I’ve pretty much ransacked all of their bases by now, and reveals that Lin has been moving everything into Labradorra.  Before that, they mostly stuck around the Devon Building, the Workstation, and the Sanctum, and most of his childhood memories are around those places.

 

 

If I were to guess…  I would say that the Workstation is their last base, which is the most dangerous.  Taka has given me some vital information today on where they are hiding.  Maybe that is where the others went when they went missing!  I’ll have to fly there once I’m done with things here in Tourmaline!

 

 

Taka adds that he’s not the only one I’ve helped turn tail from Meteor, as he’s heard that Cal went off with me too.  He says I really have a way of pulling people apart, and says that everything is Lin’s fault, and that woman is chaos inside and out.  He asks me if I knew she was narcoleptic, as he can’t tell me how many times they’ve found her collapsed in some random place.  No matter what they do, she won’t wake up except on her own.  He says that none of this would have happened if it were not for her, for she’s corrupted Team Meteor… both their ends and their means.  However, he admits that being out here sure beats being cooped up in Meteor’s drama, as most of the people around there are the opposite of fun.  Well, Blake was pretty funny.  Taka says that Blake has been around with them for a while, and used to look after him when he was younger sometimes.  Blake would die before he would admit it, but Taka thinks that he actually likes kids.

 

 

Taka admits that he’s not sure if he would even still be out here now if it weren’t for me and the red-haired menace back at the Water Treatment Center, and he thanks me for dealing with him all this time.  He reveals that though Sirius may be a subordinate to his father, I should watch out more for him than for Solaris himself.  He reveals that Sirius has always had that “history is written by the winners” mindset, but since he’s fallen in with Lin, he’s gotten much worse.  He also adds that Elias will probably be looking for him too.  Although he doesn’t want to be found by anyone, at least Elias is loyal to his father.  However, he can’t imagine having someone act towards me the same way Elias does towards Solaris because he deserves that the least of all.  He asks me if nobody is following us, and we continue onward.

 

 

I start from the bottom and work my way up, finding a Focus Sash, which Taka remarks somebody probably dropped from up in the Beryl Ward, although it isn’t a good idea to wear a scarf in the middle of a desert.  You’re telling me, I’m wearing a leather coat.  I find a swarm of trees, and a few being Exeggutor.  I catch one of them, and beat the rest, and jump to find TM93 Wild Charge.  Taka questions why and how Pokemon can learn moves from discs like this, and he questions if he can do the same.  He says not this move though, too much energy.  We head up the desert, finding junk such as the Relic Copper, shards, and other stuff.  We press on, until we find a cave within the sand…

 

 

We enter the cave, and Taka isn’t sure how this place doesn’t just cave in on itself, but he could say the same about himself.  He deems it to be good, and says that now we’ll be less likely to be found here.  However, he thinks that there must be something more in this cave, or why would he be remembering this…  However, he goes on to say that there was someone in Meteor who really had it out for me, more than normal.  He says that Elias brought in a new recruit, and for a while, he was always saying how he was going to get back at me for something.  However, he suddenly changed… maybe he got over it.  After finding hidden items and talking for a bit, I fall in one of the quicksand holes on purpose, and Taka says that we’re never going to get out of here, so he calls dibs on the left side of the cave.  I fall down the next quicksand hole, and we somehow land at the entrance again.  This means that Taka does not get the left half.  He says that if Trapinch were at the bottom of the sand holes, it would be the end of us.  However, it does feel like a huge deja vu trip for him somehow…  We head up, and find some stairs…  Taka, I can see why you wanted left side of the cave.

 

 

We head upstairs, and Taka stops me.  He thinks he knows this place, and tells me to get a closer look.  We read one of the statues, and he says that he was here before, and the statue wasn’t broken then.  He wonders how long ago it was.  He can’t read the statues, but he recognizes them, as he wonders why.  We head onwards, and find a pair of Arceus statues.  Yup, this is a holy place too…  Before we try to climb, we end up sliding down the steps, which Taka says that there should be stairs here.  He sees that they must have flattened out to this slide to keep intruders out again.  “Again?”  Taka asks if we can look around some more, saying that there’s definitely a way to get past this.

 

 

I first go down the far-right hole at the entrance area, and then I climb the ladder, and fall through the middle one all the way at the end.  Then I climb the ladder, and find myself at one of the sides with the Arceus statues.  Taka says that there will be a button, all I need to do is press it.  Nothing happens, which means we need to press the other one.  Taka vaguely remembers doing this before... with his father.  This time, I head to the far-left hole at the entrance.  I climb the ladder, go through the top-right hole, and climb the ladder.  I find myself in a dead end, but end up finding the Draco Plate.  I repeat my steps, except I fall through the left hole, just left of the pot in one of the rooms.  I fall through the top hole after I climb a ladder from a rocky trail, and climb another ladder.  When I emerge, I find a clear view of a rocky doorway.  I go through, and find the other Arceus statue.  Taka encourages me to press it, and I do.  The room shakes, and the slide transforms into stairs before our eyes.

 

 

I talk to Taka again, and he says that his father says that whatever happens to Reborn City is its own fault.  After his grandparents’ deaths, the founders built Reborn City on top of the holy Citadel, trying to hide it.  It was the ultimate insult to their forebearers’ culture, or whatever that’s supposed to mean.  We climb the stairs, and Taka tries to read the statue but can’t. 

 

 

 

 

We enter the cave, and Taka suddenly remembers now.  He reveals when he was young, his father took him here with him once.  It was before he really got involved starting Team Meteor.  They explored these ruins together looking for something…  According to Taka, it was one of the very few positive memories he actually has of him, but he feels uneasy about this room.  He can’t remember why, but he feels like we should be careful.  We walk through the chamber of Garchomp statues, and in the middle, we hear several Garchomp roars.  Taka suddenly remembers why we needed to be careful, and tells me to run.  The Garchomps all start moving, and just like that, I quickly avoid them all, finding time to breath while sneaking my way around them all.  I can’t fight them now because my team is still weak.  Fighting one Garchomp is fine, but many of them?  Hell no!

 

 

After we evade the Garchomp statues, Taka asks if his heart attack is over.  He sees that it’s over, and he asks if there were years shaved off of life, and responds with yeah.  He doesn’t think they’ll follow us out here, and he can’t believe he forgot about that.  Solaris told him at the time it was some kind of trial left for them by their family, but he can’t help but think that was absolutely not necessary.  He remembers seeing the statues before, and wonders how long ago it was.  He thinks they say something about a guardian legacy, or something.  We find TM71 Stone Edge next to an Arceus statue and a light shard.  Taka wonders if that was Solaris’ TM, and if he left it here, he probably intended for Taka to use it someday.  He says I should take it, as he’s not going to live up to his father’s corrupted legacy anyway.  I step on the alter and push the button on the Arceus statue.  The whole room starts shaking, and Taka was high-key worried he just condemned us both death by having me press this place’s self-destruct button.  However, it looks like there are some sand pits in the ground where there weren’t before.

 

 

We fall through one of the sand pits, and Taka sees that there was somewhere below there, too.  However, he quickly remembers that this is where his father met his Garchomp.  Well, it was just a Gible at the time, and…  he remembers that he tried to get one for him too, but he didn’t want it.  He doesn’t remember why, and when they left, Solaris said that Taka ruined the whole trip by not catching one.  He says so much for a positive memory, and he forgot about that entirely, and maybe he should’ve just gone with it even though he didn’t want to.  He was just a kid, and he probably didn’t have much of a reason.  Then again, maybe refusing to take the Pokemon left for me by their bloodline was just proof that he’d eventually leave them and come here with me.  So… he still doesn’t want it.  However, if I want to look for a Pokemon like that, he’ll support me.  He thinks it may not come out through normal means, but he remembers something about having to leave an offering and then coming back later.

 

 

However, he tells me that Team Meteor wasn’t always like this…  Originally, they just looked after the Citadel.  His dad said that his parents were more like shrine keepers than anything.  I go up to a basin, and he says that if we’re talking about an offering, these basins are probably where it was left.  There seem to be a lot of them, and he wonders if this was a place for many more people in the past.  His father said their family used to be much larger and much more influential.  Falling into decline is just the way of the world.  He says if I happen to have anything Pokemon might like, I should try putting it in the basins.  I fill one with PokeSnax, and he says that should be enough, hoping that something will come for it.

 

 

As I’m filling up the basins with PokeSnax, I find the Medichamite!  Taka was expecting a Garchompite, given the room upstairs.  Then again, there’s no way his father wouldn’t have that.  After filling all of the basins up, Taka reads the inscriptions.  One has nothing, despite being in good condition (the inscription is gone), and the other says something about a “tradition of honor”.  No wonder Solaris always said such boring things to Taka.

 

 

 

 

As I enter the Garchomp chamber again (Because we have to come back and all), Taka asks me if I hate his father...  After everything that man has done… After he did a lot of crimes he cannot undo…  I have one thing to say about that man…  I do not hate him.  I can see a formidable opponent when I see one, and after learning about how he has lost so much?  I cannot hate him for it.  He has lost so much…  His family, his home, his family’s history…  Even his organization has been taken away from him, and all of their values are corrupted all because of Lin.  Lin is the one to blame.  However, I can understand why Solaris hates Ame, too…  But that didn’t mean she had to die.  I know it wasn’t his fault…  But the next time I see him… I want to give him a true battle.  One fair final fight, to test our resolves.  No Lin, no bullshit, no nothing.  A fight to save the world…  That is what I want.  Solaris…  I do not hate you.

 

 

 

Taka is surprised, and asks even after everything, and he silently thanks me.  The Garchomps come to life again, and he asks if we realllly have to do this again.  We run through the Garchomp, and make it back to the basins.  Most of them are empty, but we eventually find a Gible.  I make an approach, and it runs.  We find it at another, and it skids off again.  Taka says we weren’t even that close, and wonders if it was even looking.  We try going to it again at another, but when I walk up to it, it runs off again!  Taka says that it’s starting to feel hopeless, and it runs off when it goes back to the one we were just at.  Taka says that he would say something like, let’s split up and corner it between us, but as long as it can go underground, he doesn’t think it’d make a difference.  I go to another one, and he suggests we try to get a jump on it.

 

 

I go and find a spot where I know I can jump behind Gible, and fill it up with PokeSnax.  I leave, and go through the Garchomp Gauntlet yet again, and get the drop on Gible.  To my surprise, it is actually a SHINY Gible, and so I catch it.  I name it Alcantara, after Taka’s family legacy.  Taka is surprised I caught it, but he’s kind of glad.  He doesn’t care about family or tradition or anything like that, but it would be sad if this place and that Pokemon were forgotten altogether.  He tells me to consider it a gift from him, and he gives me history, so that he doesn’t need to walk in its shadow anymore. 

 

 

He then asks me my biggest secret, if it is why I hardly say anything, then he just spaces out.  He says that none of this would have happened if it were for that woman…  The Champion of Reborn, who created the Pokemon League and advertised it across the world like some kind of fairground.  She closed up the old city’s wounds, hiding the Citadel again.  He questions regardless of anyone’s ideals, why bother just building over a ruin instead of preserving it, and he says it sounds like something he’d pull.  He then asks me if I ever met a girl named Luna in my travels, and he says that she was one of his only friends growing up.  Then she ran away… Just like him now.  He thinks about her a lot, and also adds that if I see her again, I should tell her…  he cuts himself off, saying that he thinks it’s his fault that she’s become as delusional as she is.  After all, if he hadn’t been born, she wouldn’t have had to be in that position.  He adds more about Lin, saying that she never talks except when giving orders or spitting on others, and that she’s more like a robot than a human, but even less empathetic.  He spaces out, then apologizes for being a burden all this time.

 

 

We continue on in the desert, and we find a Max Elixir.  Taka feels bad for the Pokemon who died here, but at least the sand will give them a proper burial in time, which is probably all he can ask for too.  We head north, pass up a scrapyard of trains to go to the northern desert.  We find TM08 Bulk Up, and Taka wonders how this car even got all the way over here.  He wonders how any of these trains even got to where they are, and how did he, maybe he’s just another train.  We press further north, but Taka warns me that we might not safely go further than this…  He says that the sandstorm looks like a bad time waiting to happen, and he doesn’t think it’s going to blow over soon.  He says we should go back for now, so we head to the cave nearby.   

 

 

When we head inside the cave, Taka is relieved to be out of that mess out there.  He wonders what this place is, and I don’t have any idea either, so here we go again.  I find a hidden Tamato Berry, and he wonders if I’m going to eat that.  I grab the Dawn Stone, which Taka likes it.  He also asks me what’s up with that Fern guy.  He tells me that Fern joined recently, but everyone just complains about him.  He asks if Fern and I were friends.  Ha, ha, ha…  Fern was NEVER my friend, okay?  He was always a fucking asshole to me, even when he SAID he would be nice.  Makes sense, he always couldn’t match up with my flames.  Next time I see him, I’m making sure he goes packing home.  Taka then asks me what my parents are like, and tells me I’ve seen how his father is.  And his mother—was just that.  He tells me that she was hired to have him, and then she went on her way, but that’s not normal.  Poor, poor Taka…  She was a one-night stand kind of person, and I don’t even think she and Solaris did the deed, either.  If they did, well then that’s just prostitution right there.  It’s alright, Taka.  You’re with me now, so we’re gonna take Team Meteor out!

 

 

Because the area is filled with light, I have Persian (Yes, I brought him with me) use Power Gem, and he lights up the whole room.  Taka is confused, and he asks me if I’m slipping him ‘Rare Candies’.  I go use the red crystal, and the wall turns red, confusing Taka even more.  He asks me what I am doing, as I silently walk over to it and start punching it.  He asks me what in the world I am doing, and as the door breaks down, he asks me if I always just punch my way through things when they’re in the way.  I turn around, look at him in the eye, and say “Yes.”  He gets silent, but accepts it.  When we light up the next room, he accepts it, and says it looks nicer like this anyway.  Shortly after, I smash the green crystal, and make the place a regular cave again.  Then I light it up once I’m through, and use the red crystal and smash the door.  It is then, that young Taka understands why I punch.  We break the cave down again, and head through the left part, where we find a waterfall.  Taka is surprised to see something like this out here, and hopes it doesn’t disappear when we approach it.  He lets me know he can’t swim, as his father didn’t exactly deign to enroll him in the afterschool swimming club as a kid.  He apologizes, and I light the room up again with crystals.  He knows his father has done no shortage of destructive things, but he isn’t all bad.  Solaris’ dream for Reborn is what his childhood was like—a small community in reverence to our world’s creator.  The one who’s really dangerous is Lin.  For the third time, he asks me if I hate his father, and I say no, again.  We light the room with the waterfall, and I use the blue crystal to make an ice bridge.  Taka says that’s convenient, with no swimming necessary.  Or punching, for that matter.  However, the room we go to is a dead end, but at least there’s TM84 Poison Jab.

 

 

Before I go further in the cave, I head back out and go to the scrapyard.  I find he says that this place feels nostalgic.  Not that he’s been here before or anything, but the rust, the smell, and concrete, and the thin layer of dust that tracks everywhere you step…  He’s spent a lot of nights in a room like this.  We go on ahead, and he asks if I’m out here for a gym battle, and if there is really a gym out here in this clusterfuck.  He asks if his father is concerned for him, and he is the only one who can’t seem to get it together.  At least not faithfully.  He asks if I think there’s food in some of these trains and says he always wanted to crash trains into a pile of scrap metal, and being with me makes dreams come true, or something.  He says that everyone who is connected to Lin is crazy, like the girl Terra.  Everyone talks about her like her technical ability is unrivaled, but she’s almost never around the bases, and then when she is, they end up having to repair a ton of stuff.  However, Lin always insists she stays anyway.  He also asks me if I had something to do with the doctor guy joining them recently, and he says that the Doctor creeps him out so much.  He’s almost stalking Lin, like he’s obsessed with her or something.  Taka also relates to these trains on a spiritual level.

 

 

I then decide to head further in the desert before going back to Tekinite Cave, and find a large, desolate patch of land.  We find TM27 Return, and Taka says that the water is probably undrinkable, but he would probably drink it in a pinch.  We go back to the large part of the desert, and I go back to the oasis I found, and use the Light Shard.  The whole oasis disappears, as if it was a mirage.  Taka is surprised, and wonders if that was just a mirage.  He says that there’s no way we could have walked up to it that close and just touch it if it were just that.  He gets confused, and we keep going.  We scour the desert to find another mirage oasis, and we do further south than the one we were at.  It disappears, and Taka isn’t going to get used to that.  We head to the left side of the desert (The likely spot for the next mirage), and find one a little bit to the north.  It disappears, which is the metaphor for Taka’s life.

 

 

We then head back to the spot with the large desolate patch of land, only to see lush green with a large, imposing tower.  We enter it, and Taka feels like he’s seen this place before.  He asks me if we can check it out, and I kinda want to as well.  We go to the pedestal that isn’t blocked, and Taka sees that it looks like it’ll slide around this surface area.  He asks if I want to just try stuff, and I do.  I slide it to the little white circle on the floor, and it slides the other one that is blocked as well.  It opens a path upwards, to a flight of stairs.  Taka says there’s probably more like this going upwards too.  He doesn’t really get this mechanism too well, so he’ll be counting on me.  However…  I feel a strong urge to punch the glass around the room.  So I do.  After I punch every breakable glass wall in the room, Taka confronts me for an intervention.  He’s starting to think I might have a punching addiction, and that this is an intervention.  He says that we can get me help.  Taka sees a hole, and says it leads downwards.

When we submerge, we find ourselves in a dark, musty cavern underneath the tower.  With no Pokemon to flash the room, we walk aimlessly.  While picking up random things, Taka hopes that his father doesn’t take it too hard when he hears the news because he never really got over losing his own parents the way he did.  He tells me that Solaris fights so hard to preserve Reborn’s history because he’s always in fear of losing things from the past.  I can respect that.  Eventually, we somehow find our way to a Mimikyu, who is right next to a Poison Memory.  When I pick it up, Taka asks me if we can leave now, but I stay for the Mimikyu.  I catch it, but Taka asks me what I was fighting just then, as if I was fighting nothing.  He tells me that there wasn’t anything there, but I kept acting like there was…  What the hell?

 

 

We head back upstairs, we are back at the main entrance.  We climb the stairs, and Taka deduces that regardless of if he’s been here or not, the architecture in this place is the same as the Citadel…  That should mean that this place was made by his ancestors too.  We find ourselves in a similar room as before, which means the puzzle is the same.  I solve the puzzle, and more stairs magically appear, which somehow Taka didn’t expect to happen.  We climb the stairs, but somehow, we end up not climbing up to the next room.  Maybe I did the puzzle wrong?  We climb down, and surprisingly, the puzzle is different, with the other stairs gone.  Man, this place is starting to get weird.  Taka agrees with my statement, as when I solve the next puzzle, a new path of stairs appear, which means we are on the right path.  He says that it might have been made by his forebearers but wonders why they would make it so confusing. 

As we go up the stairs, we end up going down again, with everything getting worse as we keep going up.  Taka starts to wonder if they did this on purpose, and as I solve the next puzzle, he wonders where the next flight of stairs is.  When we head back to the ones we were just at, we see that somehow, the new flight of stairs is on top of the other one.  We continue our climb, and see that it is getting waaaaay too weird.  To the point where even the doors and walls are distorted.  We keep descending for some reason, to a point where we skip a floor entirely, into the next room.  We descend to a point where we eventually find the next puzzle, which is a bit trickier, but I still succeed.  However, instead of new stairs magically appearing, we hear glass breaking, revealing a new path.

When we go through the cracked corridor, we find ourselves in the same room we just skipped, but now we can solve the puzzle.  Taka finds himself dizzy, while I find myself dizzy from doing all of these puzzles.  When I finally get done with the puzzle, Taka says that shouldn’t even be physically possible.  You mean the stairs to the sideways door, or that last puzzle?  We climb the stairs, and as we go through a long stairway corridor, he says that this is like the mirror funhouse he never got to go to as a kid.  Trust me, kid, you don’t wanna go into the House of Mirrors.  You will never be the same. Somehow, the stairs turn, and we’re walking sideways.  On stairs. Seriously.  What the fuck.

 

 

 

WHAT THE FUCK…

We end up heading BACK OUTSIDE, after all of that.  Taka is also visibly confused, and wonders what was even the point.  He wonders if we took a wrong turn somewhere, but honestly?  I don’t think that we’re actually outside...  We decide to go away from the tower, but that’s where things get REALLY trippy…  Oddly enough, we end up fighting wild Pokemon here, but at the same time, the further we go down, the more it’s like the world around us is decaying into distortion.  To the point where it is just nothing but black and white. 

When we find ourselves in but a room, where it is nothing but a grand chamber, with a sword on a pedestal.  Taka asks if it is over and sees that this might be the top.  I pick up the Normalium-Z on the left, and TM61 Will-O-Wisp on the right before walking up to the pedestal.  Taka says that the text on the pedestal is way too faded to read, but all he can see is something about “being chosen” and “distortion”.  As I go to pick up the shiny sword, Taka stops me. 

 

 

“This is… … I remember now.  My father took me here once, when I was very young.  He told me a story about our family.  A long time ago, Arceus created the world as we know it.  He also had to retroactively create the method for his arrival on that world.  This was the meteor which our family dedicated themselves and their culture to protecting.  But there was another legendary Pokemon that appeared in Reborn, too—Giratina.” 

 

“It appeared here after the world’s creation, and its very presence began to distort Arceus’ holy ground.  So, that legendary Pokemon became the enemy of our ancestors.  They fought, and they won, and supposedly Giratina left the region forever.  But even today, there are many distortions in Reborn that could be said to be caused by Giratina’s past influence.” 

 

“This tower… …is not one of them.  I remember my father telling me that our ancestors made this place to train themselves to withstand Giratina’s distortions.  After the Pokemon’s defeat, it became a tradition to climb the Tower.  And enshrined at the top was… That.”

 

 

 

Taka then tells me that I can go ahead and take the sword, but I don’t.  He questions why, even after all that.  He also does appreciate how I helped solve those puzzles downstairs, and says it might be easier if I could see it from above.  You don’t say…  He asks if that is my secret, which it is.  I then decide to take the sword, which turns out to be a Honedge!  I name it Deathbringer (Might rename it Godslayer though), and Taka says that the original weapon that defeated Giratina… is probably not that one.  Who knows if something like that could even still be around by now?  However, he mentions that this should be similar.  Maybe a descendent, like he is.  However, he admits he is not suited to this.  He may have the slayer’s blood in him, but by now, even water must be thicker than it.  He tells me that whether I end up turning this sword on Giratina or Arceus, he wants me to take it.  He then says we should get out of here, so we leave and head back to the cave, but not before sightseeing some trains.  He can relate to the trains on a spiritual level, and wonders if there’s any food.  He’s always wanted to crash trains into a pile of scrap metal, but being with me makes dreams come true, or something.  He also wonders if there’s really anything out here in this mess, other than a gym.  We head back to where we were in Teknite Cave.

 

 

We then head out from the exit from the other room, where we make it to Teknite Ridge.  Taka is relieved to be out here and says that punching was worth it after all.  We climb across the ledges, move the boulders out of the way, and make it to the cave on the left side, and find ourselves in the dead-end room, but on higher ground.  When we make it a part with a bunch of trees. Taka says that this would be a decent place to hide, if it wasn’t for all the wild Pokemon everywhere.  He may have healing items, but he only has so many.  We make it to the middle, where I find TM98 Power-Up Punch.  Taka saying that this is far as we can go here.  However, the view is nice.  He confesses that this might be weird, but…he’s glad he could see it with me.  Maybe if he can run far over the horizon… Then we’ll finally learn to be happy.

We head back where we went from, but the other exit this time.  Taka admits that despite being above the desert, it’s almost chilly out here.  Must be that breeze.  He warns me that some of these rocks look precarious, and although he is not really good with heights, he will follow me as best as he can.  We climb over to the north side of the ridge, and find Field Effect Read-Out 27, which is the Mountain field.  Taka feels like he can see half the world from here, or maybe it’s just bigger than his world’s ever been.  We press onward, and find a lonely Rowlet egg, sitting on top of a mountain!  I then decide to get rid of all the sandstorm by having one of the wild Pokemon use Tailwind, so that we can cool off.  However, what I didn’t notice was that the wind lets me jump farther up here!  Taka even says that a breeze like this could blow me right off the mountain, or across it…  He says that feels like a stretch though.  With this wind, I’m able to cross the rocks on the mountain and save the Rowlet egg from getting blown off of the nest!  Taka asks me if it is really okay to just take that, but then again, with gusts this strong, that egg might very well have had a big fall and not been put back together again.  Honestly, he agrees, but thanks me for taking them both in.  We then make our way towards the south-east side of the ridge and grab myself an Ice Memory.  Taka is not sure what is more unsafe: Hopping across all this rock like it is a thing people do, or the entire rest of his life.  I then make my way left and pick up the Pidgeotite perched on a nest!  Taka asks me if I remember that time when he said crossing the mountain using the wind was a stretch, and well… consider him stretched.

 

 

We head back to the train scrapyard, and start riding around in trains.  As we move, Taka tells me to watch where I’m steering, and to remind him to never let him drive him anywhere again.  Actually, it wouldn’t be such a bad end with me.  We end up finding the Steel Memory, but exploring this scrapyard is a lot harder than we thought…

 

 

The moment I first take a step, I falter, and mysteriously collapse to the ground, unresponsive…

 

 

What… what is happening to my body?  I have… to keep… going…

 

 

Trevore's End Chapter Thoughts

 

HOLY SHIT,  it has been forever.  I have been away for so long, I almost forgot where I was.  First of all, it is shocking that Taka ran away from Team Meteor, but then again it is not.  He has been helping me in more ways than one, and honestly, I could not be more grateful.  He heals my team whenever they are low on health, he has given me extremely useful information about the rest of Team Meteor, and some neat information about himself.  Second, what is happening to my body???  This is not normal at all.  Taka, send hel-

 

............................

 

Oh, don't worry about me.  Well, him.  He will be fine...  Who am I?  I am Trevore.  He's Trevore.  Well I am the one writing this story!  What you read in the ending is a teaser of what is to come.  You see, I was thinking to myself "How can I make this story less boring?"  Well, it took some shower thoughts... okay I lied, I was actually thinking of this while I was working outside in the cold.  But I want to give more than what I feel to be a... generic story.  I want to give my own twist on my adventure throughout Reborn, so that when I eventually get to the end, it all comes together!  Erm, excuse me.  I have no idea what came over me.  But yeah, you get the idea!  Currently I am on my last semester of school, but I think I have spent too long without doing anything.  It is time I make myself more productive, which is why the show is back on!  Sure, I may have been away for a long time, but just remember...  I am always watching.

 

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed reading!  Stay tuned for more!

 

 

Team Updates

I moved Taka from Team Meteor to Team Reborn.  This whole time, he has done nothing but help me, and he even ran away from Team Meteor.  Hell, he ran away from his father!  How can I not take him under my wing?  Welcome to the team, Taka!
